Lisa Lurie, co-founder, has a renewed passion for life. After her treatment for Breast Cancer, she started www.CancerBeGlammed.com to provide women with a single resource that provides easy, online access to fashionable yet practical recovery products and style solutions. “In a very short period of time I became bald, breast-less, and bloated from surgery and chemotherapy,” said Lisa. “It was soul destroying.” Now, with no evidence of disease, on top of helping other women find comfort in face of cancer, Lisa’s making family travel a priority.
