Leukemia starts in the bone marrow where blood cells are made.
When you are healthy, your bone marrow makes:
- White blood cells, which help your body fight infection.
- Red blood cells, which carry oxygen to all parts of your body.
- Platelets, which help your blood clot.
Over a period of time, leukemia cells can crowd out the normal blood cells.
I personally don't have the means to donate money but I believe my donation is so much more. It's life saving and I hope that I become a match for someone .... someday.
This past week has been a very hectic time with my work. It's insane to me in such a little amount of time i'm being whisked away here and there. I absolutely love it. This week started in Orlando at the campus of UCF where I began recruiting new customers as well as new reps. I would say that the event went very well and I can't wait to see the new shining stars rise to potential. After my 3 days there I traveled to Ft. Lauderdale for a Neiman Marcus Charity Event. Words could not describe my excitement. Claudia Pouccia is the President of mark. avon and is a very close friend to Kerry who was hosting the event. Kerry's son has Autism and the charity event supports the cause and awareness. Proudly mark makeup artists were on hand for all models. As we entered the ball room every chair was decked with a mark gift bag with some wonderful goodies inside. I was honored that I got to sit at the main table with Kerry & her family, the CEO and managers of Neiman Marcus of Ft. Lauderdale as well as big talent agents. I got a front row glance at all the amazing clothes and did I mention I was able to sit in front of Miami football players wives ... lol. The whole experience was beyond amazing and the real wonderful thing is that my love for fashion can intertwine with my compassion for people. It just doesn't get better than this.
The wonderful mark makeup team!!
