Model and former Real Housewife of New York Kelly Bensimon will be helping the breast cancer cause by donating three dollars from every sale of her new line of ballet flats.
The shoe line was designed around The Breast Cancer Foundation, and will feature a pink ribbon on the inside of the sole of each shoe to represent the cause. Kelly explained her reasoning behind the design,
“I have known many individuals who courageously battled breast cancer, and have seen their lives change through each and every step of the fight.” She continued to say, “From enduring long hours of chemotherapy, invasive surgeries, and even when in remission, the lingering thought of the cancer returning, this disease tests the ultimate strength of those affected,” said Kelly Bensimon.
The reality star will release Kelly by Kelly Killoren Bensimon ballet flat line in Spring 2012.
This comes just a week after E! News anchor Giuliana Rancic revealed that she is battling breast cancer. Bensimon reached out to her friend saying,
“I’m just happy that she was able to be a voice like that. And that’s so Giuliana…she’s such a strong woman and she wants to be there for other people,” Kelly told E! News reporters.
Giuliana Rancic returned to co-host yesterday’s evening edition of E News, the anchor looked wonderful.
We continue to wish her the very best in her recovery!
