Breast Cancer Survivor Launches a Business with Giveback to Cancer Research: Uplift Gift

PARK CITY, Utah–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#breastcancergifts–Gift giving options for consoling friends who have just gotten bad news
are about to get a lot better. Uplift Gift, a company started by a
breast cancer survivor, launched today tied to Breast Cancer Awareness
Month and each gift ordered will give a boost to the Breast Cancer
Research Foundation.

“The gift boxes we will be offering at our launch,” explains Kirsten
Fox, founder and CEO of Uplift Gift, “include items that personally were
meaningful for me when I was going through the trauma of diagnosis of
stage 2 breast cancer. These are similar to packages my friends brought
to me.”

The gorgeously wrapped gifts include a soft scarf to use in chilly
hospital waiting rooms, hand-crafted chocolates, gourmet tea and sipping
cocoa, essential oils and, optionally, red or white wine.

Fox says, “I am a sommelier so wine is a comfort food for me, a tool to
use to connect with the earth, the food I’m eating, and most
importantly, my friends and family surrounding me.”

Many of Uplift Gift’s suppliers are small business owners, some of whom
have also been touched by breast cancer.

“Phyllis Robinson, our chocolatier and owner of Tandem Chocolates, grew
up with a mother who dipped chocolate in their kitchen while battling
breast cancer. Twice,” says Fox. “The custom-designed art on our
greeting cards came from the hand of Amy Chin at Sassypants Designs, a
breast cancer survivor herself.”

Fox continues, “One of the reasons I created this company is that after
my own breast cancer experience, I began receiving calls, emails, texts
from friends who needed suggestions as to what to send newly diagnosed
friends. They were struggling with what was appropriate and comforting.”

Along with covering medical challenges, Uplift Gift also has gift boxes
for divorce, pet loss, and death of a loved one.

For its first three months, Uplift Gift will be giving 5% back to the
Breast Cancer Research Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to
achieving prevention and a cure for breast cancer.
