New Online Boutique, Tiger Blossom, Empowers Cancer Survivors
and Helps Women Regain Self-Confidence
A new online boutique, Tiger Blossom, launched on May 1st, 2014 by Hollywood resident Natalie Hatjes to help local cancer patients and survivors regain self-confidence and improve body image post-treatment. The boutique carries jewelry, books, mastectomy wear, breast forms, head ware, compression garments, makeup, and other products to empower and educate women.
One in eight women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer in their lifetime. One in seventy-two women develop ovarian cancer in their lifetime and in 2014, over 32,000 women will be diagnosed with melanoma. Many women struggle post-treatment with self-esteem and self-confidence. Tiger Blossom hopes to change the way women feel post-surgery by providing products that will help them feel feminine and attractive in their own skin.
“Body image is so important to a woman,” says Hatjes, owner of Tiger Blossom. “This boutique will be a place where a woman can feel empowered while shopping for these products. I want all cancer survivors and patients to know that there are thousands of other women going through what they are going through, and I want them to have a place where they feel supported.”
In addition, Tiger Blossom hosts monthly workshops for cancer patients and survivors free of charge. These uplifting seminars will increase body image and self-esteem while introducing participants to a healthier lifestyle. Participants will take part in various photo shoots, makeovers and make-up application classes, educational luncheons, workshops on nutrition and fitness, lymphedema seminars, and more. The following events are open to the public:
· Yoga Warriors Workshop: On September 28, 2014, Tiger Blossom is hosting a restorative yoga class for cancer patients and survivors at I Love Yoga Studio in Dania Beach from 4-6pm. To pre-register for the event, visit www.yogawarriors.eventbrite.com.
