October Featured Charity
A Glimmer of Hope Foundation is a Pittsburgh-based breast cancer foundation started by Diana Napper in 1994 to honor the wishes of her best friend, Carol Jo Weiss Friedman. Carol lost her battle with Breast Cancer in 1990 and Diana promised that she would pursue her dream as a jewelry designer and one day open a business that would fund a hospice in Carol's name. Diana created a pin using a Swarovski teardrop crystal, that symbolized the pain and emotion that she and her friend had felt, and fished the design by topping it with a pearl to symbolize the hope for a cure.
In honor of October being Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Mr. Magic is proud to once again partner with A Glimmer of Hope Foundation This foundation works closely with local hospitals, physicians, and researchers to find a cure for breast cancer. The Foundation aims to “Keep the hope in our amazing city,” and asks people to invest in cancer research here in our hometown of Pittsburgh. The Foundation also raises money to support breast cancer programs for patients throughout the region.
