On August 12th 2010, we were sat down and told that fearful truth that no family member wants to hear. Taylor Howard, owner of Cultivated Cocktails, listened to his beautiful mother tearfully tell him that she had been diagnosed with breast cancer. While Taylor and his mother are both strong and independant people, one can't help but recognize the fear in the room when this becomes reality.
Our story ends after a long battle and many scares, but thankfully it is happy. Taylor's mother beat her diagnosis and her odds.
In honor of her amazing strength, and the strength of all women who battle this disease, we would like to use our resources to increase awareness and give back. We are so lucky to have this ending, we want all women to have a fighting chance. Our campaign, "Pink, Stronger Than You Think," will run through October. With profits from our Shades of rosé Gin Breast Cancer awareness packages and all donations going to the American Cancer Society we hope to raise $10,000 in our first year. It is our goal to make this a yearly event, with increased giving each year. This is for the mothers, sisters, wives and loved ones who should never have to fight alone. We are with you.
