Vanity for Charity

Botox Rebuilding Lives

In 1998, when I started my dermatology practice, a medical practice attorney invited me to a luncheon for “The Battered Women’s Alternative”. This organization has since been renamed to STAND! For Families Free of Violence. At that luncheon I heard a woman tell the story of how her husband abused her to the point where he threw her out of a car at highway speeds.

This was beyond my ability to comprehend. How could someone do something like that? The luncheon was a fundraiser and it was at a time when I had just taken out what seemed to be a giant loan to start my practice which was piled on top of my student loans. I wanted to help but felt like there was little I could do. I looked to the future for a time when I could do something to help.

STAND! provides many services to our community. They offer a 24 hour crisis line. They help provide services to families to end violence and build safe and strong relationships. 80% of their funds go directly to programs for family violence survivors. Children are supported to prevent the repeated cycle of those being abused to becoming abusers.

I am grateful to announce that on October 23, 2015 we are going to host another of many “Vanity For Charity” events. On that day we will only be doing cosmetic injectable treatments such as Botox, Dysport, Restylane, Juvederm and other injectable fillers. We will be donating 100% of the revenue to STAND! For Families Free of Violence. On that Friday you can indulge yourself, guilt free, as you will be supporting a great cause. I would like to thank the many wonderful people who have supported these events in the past as they have been a huge success. Please join our community in support of STAND. See you on the 23rd!
