pinkEpromise co-founder, Blair Greiner, named recipient of the 2016 Geri Thompson award

NEWTOWN, Pa.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Blair Greiner, co-founder of online boutique pinkEpromise,
was named the 2016 recipient of the Geri Thompson Award by The Healing
Consciousness Foundation (HCF). The humbling award is presented annually
to an individual who has promoted the mission and values of the HCF for
the betterment of others affected with breast cancer. The Geri Thompson
Award was established to honor the memory of Geri Thompson and her
active role in the founding of the HCF, which provides spiritual,
mental, physical, and emotional support to women in their fight against
breast cancer.

“I did not have the pleasure of meeting Geri, but receiving an award in
honor of her legacy fills my heart in the highest regard,” said Greiner.
“All of the women who were nominated for the award have positively
influenced my life. I am grateful for the chance to stand with them in
support of a cause that is so dear to all of our hearts.”

Geri Thompson was a vibrant 40-year-old when she was diagnosed with
breast cancer in 2004. During her treatment, she received holistic
services to help her on her journey. After experiencing the benefits of
these healing modalities, Geri approached her employer to secure funding
for the HCF. Through her efforts, the HCF was awarded $10,000. This gift
made it possible to establish the Healing Certificate and Practitioner
Programs.

In 2010, Geri was diagnosed with metastatic cancer, but continued to be
an active participant in HCF programs, including the first “Metafriends”
Retreat. Geri passed away in 2014, requesting that those she left behind
continue to support the HCF in her memory. With the establishment of
this award, her legacy will never be forgotten and hopefully, will
motivate others to model her actions and commitment to increasing the
impact of the HCF.

Greiner was recognized for her dedication to furthering the mission of
the HCF through the business she created while battling breast cancer.
pinkEpromise provides boutique-style and handcrafted goods at a discount
price with a portion of every purchase benefiting the HCF. The company
was created out of Greiner’s desire to give back to others who helped
her on her journey. In addition, she is a leader of Bucks County Young
Breast Friends, a support group for women under 40.

Greiner adds, “With the support and love of my parents, my husband, my
children, and the pinkEpromise team, I feel grateful that I have the
opportunity to give back to the foundation that directly supports those
who face this disease.”
