Elizabeth Miller Home for the Cure Website Launches
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, September 21, 2011
NEW YORK - The new Elizabeth Miller Home for the Cure website has gone live. The site, which raises funds for breast cancer treatment, was created in honor of its namesake, a longtime home textiles industry member who died of the disease in spring 2010.
Located at www.homeforthecure.org , it is centered on Miller and the mission to find a cure for breast cancer. While she was senior vp of design at Mohawk Industries' Karastan division, Miller was diagnosed with inflammatory breast cancer. During her five-year battle, she lectured, raised awareness and funds, and supported Susan G. Komen.
Last year, the Elizabeth Miller Home for the Cure team walked during the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure NYC for the first time without Miller.
Visitors to the new site who make donations and show support to the cause will be automatically entered into a raffle to win one of several prizes, such as designer fine jewelry and luxury bedding.
Elizabeth Miller Home for the Cure is also accessible on Facebook and Twitter.
The organization, which has raised more than $40,000 toward breast cancer research, said it has been "supported by many wonderful people, but none more than Frank Foley and Joan Karron-Foley of CHF Industries, and Mary Bonanno of Style Lab, Home for the Cure's team captain."
On the website, the "Appreciation" tab lists companies that have aided the organization. Another tab, "Team Elizabeth," shows a group picture of more supporters.
