On February 26, 2014, Carol's Crusade for a Cure is set to host their second annual Mani-for-a-Cure. This spa themed cocktail party is held in support of the second annual Triple Negative Breast Cancer Day held on March 3, 2014. Mani-for-a-Cure will be one of dozens events held by supporters across the country to raise awareness of triple negative breast cancer and funds for research.
According to the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation® ,approximately every half an hour another woman in the US is diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer.
Triple negative breast cancer accounts for approximately 15%-25% of all breast cancer cases.
Carol’s Crusade for a Cure (CCFAC), the organization behind Mani-for-a-Cure, was founded by Alexa and Dana Klebanow in 2013 to honor the life of their mother, Carol Eilbott Klebanow.
"A mother's treasure is her daughter" - Catherine Pulsifer.
Carol passed away in March 2013, a few weeks after the inaugural Mani-for-a-Cure, following a courageous 8-year battle with triple negative breast cancer. Last year's event raised nearly $30,000 making Carol proud and prompting her daughters to continue the fight in her honor.

Event highlights include manicures by Manicube, massages by Equinox, shaves by Truman's Gentleman's Groomers.
Food provided by Bareburger & Fatty Sundays, drinks by Belvedere and VitaFrute by VeeV.
Exciting raffles and a silent auction will also be a highlight of this event.
CCFAC strives to educate others about triple negative breast cancer and raise funds for research. Mani-for-a Cure is CCFAC's signature event and is hosted by Carol's friends and family.
"It wasn't until our Mom's cancer returned nearly 5 years after being in remission that we began to understand that certain types of breast cancer are much more aggressive, and that people need to understand all breast cancer is not the same. Carol's Crusade for a Cure hopes to play a part in educating others, starting with Mani-for-a Cure and Triple Negative Negative Breast Cancer Day."-Alexa and Dana Klenbanow.
