  • (1888PressRelease) December 10, 2010 - Port Washington, NY -- Hug-E-Gram and the The Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Fund, Inc. are proud to announce a collaboration to raise money and awareness for breast cancer through their "Today and Tomorrow Program."

    For every $100 donation to the Today & Tomorrow Program the donor selects a recipient to receive a Hug-E-Gram with the audio message "Early Detection Saves Lives so don't Bury Your Head in the Sand, Get a mammogram. The donation also funds research at Stony Brook University Medical Hospital to find a cure for tomorrow

    Peri Zausner, creator of the Hug-e-Gram and a six-year breast cancer survivor commented, " If I survived cancer I wanted to give back by raising funds for breast cancer research. However, early detection saved my life so I wanted to put both elements together into one unique program. This program is unique because it is the first program where the donation not only funds research, but also directly effects the donor's loved ones." The Hug-e-Gram is soft and plush and sewn into the shape of loving arms that simulate a hug, and added Zausner, "What better way to remind women to get a mammogram then to send her a simple message of love wrapped in a hug".

    When asked why she was starting in December, Mrs. Zausner replied," It has always bothered me that we raise money for one month but breast cancer effects women every month, so I wanted a program to work as hard as breast cancer does."
