Peabody, MA (WiredPRNews.com) – In a month long tribute to Mother’s Day, Jeans Cream is giving 10% of all on-line sales during May to help single moms with cancer. The total donation will be made to Singleton Moms, a remarkable organization providing financial assistance and volunteer-based resources to single mothers with cancer.
Single mothers in the midst of cancer treatment are going through surgery, chemo and radiation therapy, juggling the demands of work and family, trying to make ends meet financially, and coping with the emotional challenges of a family affected by cancer. This can be utterly overwhelming and take its toll not only on the mom, but also on the children and concerned family members.
During the month of May, those wishing to support single mothers by purchasing Jeans Cream can go to the company’s website and buy any size tube of the radiation cream that helps with radiation side effects. The company hopes the promotion will give more exposure to the needs of single moms with cancer.
Singleton Moms serves mothers in the Phoenix, AZ area. As Jean Soulios, Jeans Cream founder says, “Although we’re based in Massachusetts and our community members live all over the world, Singleton Moms is the one and only source of practical support we could find dedicated to helping single mothers navigate the challenges of cancer. If more people realize the struggles these women go through, there might be more assistance available for them. Our intention is to help single mothers with cancer, while helping to bring awareness to this issue.”
Singleton Moms co-founder, Andy Royal offers some simple advice for those wishing to help single moms in their own community. She says, “People generally don’t ever ask for help and will often reply that they are fine. Instead of asking, ‘What can I do for you?’ Just do it!”
Jeans Cream was originally created as a radiation burn cream to help protect, soothe and heal the skin when undergoing radiation treatments for cancer. Increasingly, customers are using the cream beyond their course of radiation therapy. They’ve recommended it to friends and family, and are using it themselves to relieve the pain and itching of eczema and shingles, to alleviate sunburn, and even to help skin heal after cosmetic surgery. http://www.jeanscream.com
Singleton Moms is a 501c(3) non-profit organization founded by Andy Royal and Jody Farley-Berens as a living legacy to their friend, Michelle Singleton, a single mother who eventually lost her batttle with cancer. For the women on their service, the organization provides healthy meals twice a week, $300 a month in financial assistance applied directly towards bills, and monthly house cleaning. The non-profit also provides a database of donated professional services, such as legal and financial services, and a mentorship program for children. http://www.singletonmoms.org
