Norman Love Confections is observing Breast Cancer Awareness month, offering the community a sweet way to raise breast cancer awareness and support those who are currently fighting against breast cancer. During the month of October, a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each limited-edition breast cancer awareness-themed cupcakes and cookies will benefit 4 Words Foundation, providing financial assistance to those in need of breast cancer tests and screenings.
The cupcakes and cookies are available at Norman Love Confections’ chocolate salons in Fort Myers, Estero and Naples for the month of October only.
“Breast cancer affects so many families in our community, and the 4 Words Foundation helps to ensure that local individuals have access to the necessary tests and screenings for breast cancer, regardless of finances,” said Norman Love, founder and president of Norman Love Confections. “It’s an important mission and my wife Mary and I are honored to help on a local level in a small way.”
