Sharing expertise to promote well-being
Family-owned luxury skincare company, Natura Bissé supports the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation, and Susan G. Komen®, the world’s leading nonprofit breast cancer organization, in the fight against breast cancer.
The partnership will support Komen’s work to save lives by investing in cutting-edge research to discover the cures for breast cancer, as well as vital patient support programs to help people facing breast cancer today. The organizations will partner on an integrated program and ensure the skincare needs of cancer survivors, and those living with the disease, are understood and met in a compassionate and supportive environment.
“At Natura Bissé, we are fully committed to provide support for skin health at all stages of life, and that doesn’t change when a case of cancer is diagnosed. The potential side effects of oncological therapies on the skin are relevant as they can impact the well-being and adherence to the medical treatments. That is why we are so excited to partner with Susan G. Komen and the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation, which just launched in the United States.” -Verónica Fisas, CEO Natura Bissé Group and Member of the Board of the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation
As part of this alliance, Komen and the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation will provide education, training and resources to those undergoing oncology treatments, as well as providers, caregivers and aestheticians. This effort will promote well-being by helping those going through their journey understand and navigate the common physical and subsequent emotional side effects of cancer and cancer treatment.
“For nearly four decades Susan G. Komen has worked to meet the most critical needs of our breast cancer community. Through this partnership we are able to help improve the quality of life for anyone touched by breast cancer, while also raising funds essential to our efforts to help people live longer, better lives.” -Paula Schneider, CEO Susan G. Komen
Skincare is seen as a luxury to some, especially to someone undergoing their cancer journey who may be burdened by medical bills. Komen and the Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation are committed to removing barriers to best care for people at a time when they feel they are most vulnerable. Together, the organizations will meet people where they are at in their journey and are committed to providing short and long-term support.
The Ricardo Fisas Natura Bissé Foundation is a Champion Partner of Susan G. Komen. Both organizations are committed to working together to pursue their shared vision of healing for everyone touched by cancer. The goal is to reduce barriers and delays in the cancer continuum of care, change people’s beliefs and attitudes while encouraging positive behaviors related to cancer through education and, ultimately, invest in evidence-based programs that drive change.
