PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (CBS) — October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.
Karen Gagnier, locally-based cofounder of Celebrate Wine, is raising awareness and money for breast cancer awareness through a wine label she developed. It’s a nonprofit venture that benefits Living Beyond Breast Cancer in Haverford, Pa.
“My mother passed from lung cancer,” Gagnier (top photo) tells What’s Cooking. “She was diagnosed with cancer, (and) six months later I had breast cancer, and we went through chemotherapy together.”
Together with her sister, Gagnier created one red and one white wine from Napa.
“Nothing says an honoring of somebody like a toast!” she says.
