Motives Global Breast Cancer Awareness 2020 (Taiwan)



In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Motives® is honored to feature seven extraordinary breast cancer survivors representing seven different countries, including Tsai from Taiwan. 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.

We hope you will be inspired and encouraged by each woman’s story — and please take a moment to review the statistics on breast cancer below.
