Parade of Ribbons

Our cause at I Am Beautiful Women's Foundation "Parade of Ribbons", is to unify our efforts with the efforts of others to  bring awareness of the many diseases that women and young girls suffer with and provide a support system which do not discriminate based on the type of disease the individual is suffering with.

Our immediate goal is to assist women and young girls who suffer severe hair loss as a result of these many diseases. Most insurance companies consider this assistance as a cosmetic procedure and refuse to offer coverage. As we all understand hair recovery connected to any medical condition is far from a cosmetic procedure for women.

We have now extended our goals to include all other assistance needed for women and young girls who suffer severe hair loss. We have a network of services which include things like, counseling, medical advice, motivational workshop, family assistance, and more...

Our "Parade of Ribbons" events are designed to bring together supporters of all diseases and make them aware of the commonality of their causes, unify their efforts and bring notice to the community and local businesses that support for certain diseases shouldn't began and end on the first and last day of a designated month for that particular disease.

We invite you to join in our efforts by hosting or becoming a sponsor for "Parade of Ribbons". We will assist you in hosting your own "Parade of Ribbons" walk/run, fashion show or benefit. Use you imagination to make your event one of the most uplifting and rememberable events in your community.
