Has Anyone in Your Life Ever Been Touched by Cancer...?
On October 30, 2013the life of Sandra Powers changed forever.
Sandra believes it is now her calling to help others who are diagnosed with breast cancer and who may be experiencing financial and emotional challenges. The non-profit organization that she officially established in 2015 will primarily assist both women and men who need assistance paying their living expenses as their employment has been impacted as a result of breast cancer.
She selected the name “Illumin8Life for her 501c3 organization because a woman born today has about a 1 in 8 chance of being diagnosed with breast cancer at some time during her life. Detection saves lives and part of Sandra’s calling is to educate women about the facts and statistics of breast cancer. The vision for Illumin8Life is “To become a nationally recognized non-profit organization to help thousands of people battling cancer and raise awareness on the national stage”.
Sandra had a successful career in the day spa industry where she served as a consultant, worked in business development and founded her own spa. A powerful and passionate advocate for those suffering from breast cancer, Sandra enjoys speaking to all types of organizations where members simply desire additional knowledge of this terrible disease, and enjoys sharing the story of her personal journey with new friends she meets along the way. As Sandra would say, “Get your mammogram”!
Sandra currently resides in Fountain Hills, Arizona with her two dogs, Lola and Roxi. She can be reached at (480) 353-7005 or at email@example.com.
