For the month of October, Daily Greens will discount their juices by 50 cents and donate an additional 50 cents from bottles sold nationwide to the Young Survival Coalition. Founder Shauna Martin is a breast cancer survivor and launched Daily Greens after finding a passion for green juicing to help with her fight against breast cancer. Below is some additional information about Shauna and Daily Greens. Do you think this would be of interest for a Breast Cancer Awareness Month story?
Daily Greens founder Shauna Martin’s journey as an entrepreneur was inspired by her personal experience of being diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33 and has since become an advocate for women battling the disease, founding Pink Ribbon Cowgirls, a social network of young breast cancer survivors.
At age 33, Daily Greens founder Shauna Martin was diagnosed with breast cancer. With a young family to care for, Shauna struggled to recover from the trauma of multiple surgeries and the toxic effects of chemotherapy. Eight years clear, Shauna attributes her complete recover from breast cancer, in part, to her current healthy lifestyle which includes a daily green juice. Shauna decided that she anted to share this life-enriching habit and spread the good word about drinking your vegetables. Here is a link to a video of Shauna sharing her story: http://youtu.be/joCJOGH7nDg
A former lawyer, Shauna Martin created Daily Greens after experiencing the benefits of juicing which helped to restore her health and energy. I wanted to share her inspirational story as she was not only able to beat the disease, but was also inspired to launch a business as a result of her experience with cancer and help other young women get support from their peers. During her fight with cancer, she realized that there was a real need for support groups for younger women that not only addressed the disease but issues specifically related to being a younger age group as well as having small children.
With a growing business under her belt, Martin went from selling 60 bottles at the farmers market last December to closing out December 2013 with over $1 million in revenue for the year. She donates a portion of sales to organizations that assist young women battling breast cancer.
