Lash Donation to MSTI
BOISE, ID – August 16, 2018. Red Aspen announced it is donating 500 pairs of lashes to St. Luke’s Mountain States Tumor Institute (MSTI) for distribution to chemotherapy patients around Southwest Idaho.
“Whether it’s a friend, family member, or personal diagnosis, cancer is something that touches everyone,” said Genie Reese, CSO of Red Aspen.
St. Luke’s MSTI focuses on all aspects of cancer care for patients and has clinics throughout Idaho.
“Together, our clinics see between 130 and 150 new women with cancer every month, many of whom will be treated with powerful chemotherapy,” said Maegan Krahn, Special Events Coordinator for St. Luke's Health Foundation. “While Chemotherapy drugs attack the growing cancer, they also attack other growing cells like hair roots and that can include eyelashes. This donation will provide women with an alternative during their care, if they feel like that’s something they need.”
CEO of Red Aspen, Jesse McKinney said,
“Knowing the care, love, and support that MSTI is helping provide to women going through a difficult time, we want to do what we can to help women who are going through chemotherapy feel beautiful. This goes toward our greater mission as a company to help all women stand strong together.”
