Live Beautiful Nation was founded by Nicole & Marc Sharma, husband and wife duo who are both clothing brand founders and entrepreneurs. The couple founded the non profit organization after Nicole's breast cancer diagnosis on March 31st 2022. *non profit status is pending.
After realizing how expensive it was on a day to day level to battle breast cancer, and how grateful they were with Nicole's prognosis and experience through her breast cancer journey, they felt compelled to do something to help others in a similar situation.
So they founded Live Beautiful nation, dedicated to helping women, and families battling breast cancer. Battling breast cancer effects the day to day costs of living with and battling the disease, as it takes a huge impact on time, grocery costs, travel expenses to and from treatment, surgeries, MRI's, and doctors visits; in addition to a person's regular schedule and routines. Something I didn't know, until I was living with it myself.
For women and families already struggling with financial insecurity, this can be devastating and often requires difficult decisions to be made about paying for healthcare or living costs.
