Breast Cancer Awareness Month Campaign 2020 – Motives Cosmetics

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Motives® is honored to feature seven extraordinary breast cancer survivors representing seven different countries. While each woman was given a special day to be pampered with a free makeover by a Motives Certified Trainer, we hope you will agree that the real beauty comes from each woman’s willingness to share her story with the world and find the strength to leave us with words of encouragement.
Please search “Motives Global Breast Cancer Awareness” in the search bar to hear from each woman featured in this video.
We hope you will be inspired and encouraged by this video, as well as each woman’s story and please take a moment to review the statistics on breast cancer in the video description below.
