Napoleon Perdis Makes A Difference
In Greek mythology Hera was the queen of heaven, an all-powerful goddess who blessed and protected women’s lives. Nowadays, we need a little more tangible help, which is why organisations like Ovarian Cancer Australia qualify as modern-day godsends. Ovarian Cancer Australia’s mission is to raise the profile, education and community awareness of ovarian cancer, and to support ovarian cancer patients through their journey. Every year in Australia around 1500 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer and more than 850 will die of the disease.
From October 20, 2008, Napoleon Perdis is teaming up with Ovarian Cancer Australia, donating the net proceeds of every DeVine Goddess Lipstick in Hera (RRP $30) to the charity. So each time you purchase the shimmering pink shade, you’re contributing to an extremely worthy cause. Ovarian Cancer has always been considered a silent killer: About 75% of women diagnosed will be at an advanced stage, where the cancer has spread and is very difficult to treat successfully. When ovarian cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, the outlook is exceedingly good, with as many as 90% of patients being cured. Unfortunately, only about 25% of diagnosis is at an early stage. So make it your new year's resolution to do your bit to help ovarian cancer and make your lips look luscious at the same time!
