** About Crickett’s Answer for Cancer
By Bonnie Julius
Crickett’s Answer for Cancer is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that was formed in memory of Crickett Julius, who passed away in October of 2006, only four months after being diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer at the age of 39. As her mother and cousin, we founded Crickett’s Answer for Cancer to support women with breast cancer. We provide wigs, mastectomy and lymphedema products, massage, facials, and other pampering services, as a way to help women feel feminine and beautiful despite losing their hair and/or breasts.
A woman with breast cancer often feels a loss of her identity and self-esteem as a woman, but may consider these frivolous items for which she should not spend money. Like many women, she may be busy caring for her children, family, and possibly even her own parents… all at once. As a result, she may place herself last on the priority list. Crickett’s Answer for Cancer reminds women with breast cancer to care for themselves too, as feeling good about themselves and having time for relaxation are important for healing, and for managing life with breast cancer. By providing no-cost products and services, we honor these courageous women with breast cancer, as well as the memory of Crickett Julius.
We rely on the kindness and generosity of our supporters, including a number of hair stylists, massage therapists, and aestheticians who so graciously offer their services to the patients we serve. You may also support our cause by becoming a volunteer, placing a coin collection canister in your business, sponsoring our golf tournament, or making a tax-deductible donation to Crickett’s Answer for Cancer. In each of these ways, you CAN make a difference in the life of a woman with breast cancer. If interested, please contact us (http://crickettsanswer.startlogic.com/index.html) for more information.
Susan Niebur – Toddler Planet (http://toddlerplanet.wordpress.com/)* * About This Collaboration
When the late blogger, astrophysicist and mom, Susan Niebur (http://toddlerplanet.wordpress.com/) blogged about there being a lack of resources for breast cancer survivors seeking assistance with getting lymphedema garments, we knew we had to help! Last winter, our president Josh Levin connected with Carole Tronne at Crickett’s Answer for Cancer to be able to provide lymphedema compression sleeves and gauntlets to those that are in need through Crickett’s. In addition to donating compression garments, we wanted to find other ways to give back to this amazing non-profit and that’s when Susan Niebur, through her connections in BlogHer, introduced us to renown designer Liz Lange to design a sleeve in benefit of Crickett’s. After months of hard work, the iconic Liz Lange design was introduced in the spring of 2012.

The Global Soap Project began in May 2009. Founder Derreck Kayongo introduced a concept that would improve global health and at the same time reduce systemic waste in the hospitality industry. His idea was simple: take some of the 3 million bars of soap thrown away every day by hotels, and reprocess it into new soap that can be shared with vulnerable populations around the world.
A former refugee, Derreck saw firsthand the health issues that could be prevented by lack of soap, and believed he could make a difference by making it accessible to everyone.
