October Breast Cancer Awareness
I lost my mom to breast cancer.
Nine years ago, I experienced an extremely difficult event when my mother succumbed to breast cancer. This event turned my entire life upside-down, as I had an eleven-month-old son, Wyatt, to care for. I was a stay-at-home mom, and my husband had a busy schedule, so I had to find the strength to take care of my child while simultaneously grieving. Additionally, I had recently become pregnant with my second son, leading to additional emotional turmoil. The guilt soon became overwhelming, and I felt lost. Fortunately, my husband Karl was there to support me, or else I would not have been able to get out of bed.
"Being a mother, without a mother, is the hardest, most heartbreaking challenge. There isn't a day that goes by where I don't wish I could tell her that she was a perfect mom now that I'm raising my children. I admire everything she was and hope I can be as good of a mother as she was to my sister and me." - Corinne Braunwarth, Owner of Oh La Lari®
The impetus behind the inception of Oh La Lari® was her. She was incredibly generous and affectionate with her regard for every individual. With her being my inspiration, my purpose is to extend the same courtesy to my mother that she extended to me. It is not difficult to feel overwhelmed with motherhood, particularly when suffering from postpartum depression. Oh La Lari® believes that regaining one's sensuality can help in regaining their true self. When I wear my attractive bralette, I experience a sense of power and assurance. Following the development of that assurance, my marriage prospered and we reestablished our bond as a family. I am hopeful that I can pass this on to all mothers everywhere. When my mother was diagnosed with her first battle with breast cancer, I was employed by Chan Luu, with whom we joined forces with Breastcancer.org. The founder, Marissa Weiss, called my mother and provided her with the much needed support to help her cope with the illness.
Therefore, for October, I will donate 10% of all sales to breastcancer.org.
My desire is to return the favor to every woman and beloved family member who is battling breast cancer.
