Pink Product ~ Alex Woo/Christina Applegate TREE OF LIFE pendant

Alex Woo’s latest contribution towards fighting for breast cancer research and awareness is the Tree of Life pendant. Designed by Alex Woo with the award winning actress Christina Applegate, the pendant with an encircled tree represents harmony, hope and renewal. Each of the seven leaves remind us to live everyday of the week to the fullest. This pendant is an everyday reminder of the most important things in life, to stay vigilant about breast cancer awareness and steps to early detection.

Net proceeds from the sale of the Tree of Life pendant directly benefit Right Action for Women, a Christina Applegate Foundation. Right Action for Women encourages women to learn facts and figures about breast cancer and provides funding for the expensive MRI screenings that help in early detection of breast cancer.
