Glam4Good: Meet Jennie and Mariana

June 23, 2016

We are honored to support The GLAM4GOOD Foundation and founder Mary Alice Stephenson as part of our ongoing #VBGIVESBACK program and will be donating $10 of every order in June to the cause.
We already told you a little bit about the incredible day we had with the GLAM4GOOD Foundation and founder Mary Alice Stephenson at our Madison Avenue store and wanted to take some time to introduce you to the women we had the honor of pampering alongside our June VB Gives Back partner.

Mariana started treatment for breast cancer the day after our day of pampering. At age 28 with a two-year-old daughter at home, Mariana’s positivity and strength are a true inspiration.

“I had a bilateral mastectomy and I still feel beautiful. I know that I lost something but I gained life. That’s what you have to focus on,” she told us. “This journey is a journey. I call it my little triathlon. It’s a race you have to go through, but take one step at a time. Solve one problem at a time. Don’t try to chew it all at once.”

“Do not be afraid, know that there are many stories of success and you don’t have to go through this alone.”

Jennie was diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2016 at the age of 29. She’s currently undergoing treatment and for her, the day of pampering with GLAM4GOOD was a reminder that she is still beautiful, no matter what her appearance may be or how she’s feeling that day. “It’s uplifting, it’s indescribable. It’s really hard to put to words the strong emotions that I’m feeling right now,” she told us. “Today was a very special day for me.”

Jennie, who has a one-and-one-half-year-old daughter, also offered up some words for other women that find themselves battling breast cancer: “Always trust your instinct and what you are feeling in the moment. Believe in yourself to keep moving forward.”
For the month of June, $10 from every order on will be donated to the GLAM4GOOD Foundation. Shop Jennie and Mariana's looks below to support the cause.
