We’re joining forces with the Anne Rita Monahan Foundation to raise awareness of ovarian cancer. During the month of September (Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month), Hothouse Botanicals will donate 25% percent of our profits from each body butter sold to the Anne Rita Monahan Foundation.
Anne Rita is a local Arizonan who has been battling ovarian cancer for the last seven years. She started her foundation in 2007 to fight back against ovarian cancer. ARM’s mission is to promote awareness and education about ovarian cancer and raise money to help fund the discovery of an effective, reliable screening tool that will help detect ovarian cancer early and give women the best opportunity for full remission.
Ovarian cancer does not cause many early signs until the cancer grows. Women should consult their physician if they experience:
- pressure or fullness in the pelvis
- abdominal bloating
- or changes in bowel and bladder patterns that continue and/or worsen
