While in the battle for the fight of her life against stage 3C breast cancer, Charlene Kimmel discovered that affordable cancer apparel and a welcoming environment was greatly needed. Desperately wanting others, who were newly diagnosed with cancer, to have a more uplifting experience, Battle Boutique was founded.
Battle Boutique is a 501(c)3 non-profit created for cancer patients, survivors, family, and friends by providing:
Affordable apparel and supplies needed during treatment, recovery and cancer awareness.
A place to donate apparel and supplies that are no longer needed.
A community of encouragement and emotional support.
Not only is she the founder of Battle Boutique,
she is also a stage 3c breast cancer, battle tested, survivor.
"In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God." Ephesians 6:16-17 (NIV)
