For Our Daughters Inc

For Our Daughters Inc Educating our young women on how to break down communication barriers and become advocates for their own health and wellness For Our Daughters was founded by Mercedes Holloway, a 28 year old breast cancer survivor.

After her diagnosis, Mercedes realized there was a educational gap for young women in her community. That needed to change. For Our Daughters' goal is to reach out and provide services to not only bring to the forefront health awareness to the community and our daughters, but empower young women to become advocates for their own health as well. To empower one young woman to become a advocate for her own health an wellness makes it all worth it!

Mission: For Our Daughters is on a mission to educate young women with the tools needed to live long healthy lives.

Indigo Child Teddy Bear Drive

Indigo Child Teddy Bear Drive

Hello Teddy Bear crew. Big thanks to your support. Over this weekend the Ralph Lauren flagship store in Chicago started an internal drive among the staff to collect as many teddies as they can. I was so, so overjoyed by their desire to adopt us for the month of June. So excited to pick up their collections.

Asking the rest of the world to please participate too. We are shooting for 1000. We take all donations to the University of Chicago at the end of the month where we will hand said donations out to each of the children on site, and leave the rest for the new patients that are coming in and out every day.

Please support us in our efforts to help ill children find their smiles and inner strength during such a trial. Only “NEW” animals please. Their immune systems are weak so we want to refrain from passing along any old pathogens that may upset their delicate systems.

PM us for details on how to make donations.

Mercedes, first of all, thank you so very much for the opportunity to be able to share such a magically evening with my survivor sisters. I am in awe of how truly amazing you are to be able accomplish and achieve your dreams managing a so need organization for young women, being a spokesperson in the community and a magazine reporter. BUT, I MUST tell you, I feel your greatest accomplishment is that young daughter your are raising. I had the opportunity to speak with her and her cousin in the hallway. I was absolutely blown away how beautiful she is physically, but more importantly intellectually. She spoke with such eloquence and grace about "For Our Daughters" . She carries your passion and she is our future. Thank you for her.
