Welcome to Distinction’s “Giving Back” Campaign.
Distinction’s owner, Berta, is deeply committed to the fight against
breast cancer and lung disease as it has personally touched the lives of many
she loves including her mother; Juanita, sister; Page, aunt; Sharon and closest
friend; Pam. Distinction has
joined the fight against breast cancer and lung disease by
donating a percentage of all proceeds to non-profit organizations working to find a cure.
A note from Distinction’s owner, Berta…
“In the spring of 2004, my mother and best friend were both diagnosed with
breast cancer within two weeks of one another.
My mother was in Minnesota and my best friend
Their surgeries to remove the tumors were only 36 hours apart.
After flying back and forth to be with each at their surgery and accompanying
them to many of their chemotherapy and radiation treatments for months to come;
I was left both deeply moved by their amazing spirit during this difficult time
and highly motivated to do my part to fight against this disease that affects so
many women. I remember how I felt
each time I would sit in the treatment centers with my mother and friend and
look around me at the immeasurable amount of courage and strength exuding from
those receiving their treatments.
It was then that I established the “Giving Back” campaign.
I wanted to both honor these individuals and to share my profits with the
organizations that fight against breast cancer, and also lung disease in which
my sister Page has been battling for over 15 years.
I wish to honor the many individuals impacted by breast cancer and lung disease
and to remember those that have unfortunately lost their battle, by sharing
their stories on this tribute page.
I most sincerely hope this tribute page can be used by others to honor and
remember their loved ones whose lives have been impacted by these illnesses.”
