PLANNED GIVING

Introducing The Living Beauty Legacy Circle

More than 843,000 women are diagnosed with cancer each year in the United States. For more than a decade, The Foundation for Living Beauty has provided support and emotional healing to women struggling with a cancer diagnosis.  Thousands of women have been uplifted and had their lives changed through the healing support and activities provided to our Living Beauties.

The Foundation for Living Beauty provides ongoing resources, retreats and activities to women with a cancer diagnosis.  These women can access our services from first diagnosis through treatment and beyond.  Our goal is to build funding to help ensure that these women and the ones who come after them will have access to the emotional and wellness support they need to heal.

What We Do

The Foundation for Living Beauty strives to uplift women along their cancer journey by addressing the emotional and physical issues that often occur in relation to their diagnoses and the harsh medical treatments they must endure.  We work to empower our Living Beauties on their healing through a multi-tiered, wrap-around approach.  This approach includes wellness retreats, educational workshops, support groups, makeovers, yoga for cancer, meditation and more.

Our signature programs are our Wellness Retreats; 3-4 day healing journeys that transport our Living Beauties to a peaceful environment where they are immersed in workshops designed to give them skills they can incorporate at home and group activities focused on celebrating life and deepening the bond of their sisterhood support community.  The Foundation for Living Beauty also offers day retreats, educational workshops and sisterhood events to support our Living Beauties.

Meet Cathy and Stacie, Mother and Daughter

Living Beauty Stacie was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2015.  One of her strongest supporters was her mother, Cathy.  Several months later, Cathy was diagnosed with breast cancer as well, and the mother-daughter team came to The Foundation for Living Beauty in search of education, community and support.

Of her Living Beauty experience, Cathy said, “Stacie and I were so grateful for the women of The Foundation for Living Beauty and the support they provided to us.  The things we learned and the relationships we formed were fundamental in our healing, and we will always stay connected to the organization.  Like the two generations of our family supported by The Foundation, we hope that future generations of women with cancer will be able to find the same healing and supportive environment we discovered. We are thankful for The Foundation for Living Beauty every day.”

How You Can Help

While ongoing donations are a critical part of our success, we invite you to consider making a Legacy Gift to The Foundation for Living Beauty, one that will benefit you and your loved ones, and will also provide future support to women with cancer.  Some of the ways you can participate include:

  • Bequests

    You can name The Foundation for Living Beauty as a beneficiary in your will, either with a specified cash amount or by designating a percentage of your estate to The Foundation.

  • Life Insurance Policies

    Another opportunity for giving is to designate The Foundation for Living Beauty as one of the beneficiaries of your life insurance policy.

  • Tax Deferred Annuities

    Tax-deferred annuities can provide you with income for the rest of your life while still making a designated gift to The Foundation for Living Beauty.

There are many ways that you can make a designated gift to The Living Beauty Legacy Fund.  Through your Legacy Gift, you can help ensure that future generations of women will receive the caring support they need during a very difficult time.
