As you all know, Breast Cancer Research is near and dear to my heart, so it would only make sense that when we were searching for a new linen to add to our growing offerings here at Classy Chix Galleria, we would search out a company that gives back! We found it in Nygard Style Direct.

As a part of Nygard for Life Initiative, the company has opened 2 state of the art breast cancer research units over the years, to include The Nygard International Molecular Biology Breast Cancer Research Unit and The Breast Cancer Tumour Bank. The Breast Cancer Tumour Bank is the only one of its kind in the world and currently houses more than 8,000 different types of breast cancer tumours.

World-renowned scientists are working together to eradicate breast cancer.Their goal is to diagnose breast cancer earlier so they can target individual treatment to patients.
