While going through her treatments, she was watching a football game with her husband and had the idea to design a decorative football that represented breast cancer. She thought about all the support and love she was receiving while going through a very difficult treatment regime and how many women struggle with finances. She decided that she could sell her work (knowing how many people attend and watch football games) and donate a percentage to women who were experiencing financial hardships while undergoing treatment.
While sick in bed, she created her first breast cancer awareness football and realized that what she had was a gift which, along with the support of her 3 daughters and husband, gave her strength to get through her treatment. She made several more footballs and started Yola Sports/Luxury Design.
Today, Yolanda is cancer-free and has expanded her design range to include business card holders, compact mirrors, Bibles, photo albums, and other specialty gifts such as the Capital Breast Care Center butterfly logo lapel pin. 15% of all proceeds from her breast cancer awareness products will be donated back to Capital Breast Care Center.
Yolanda has been a supporter of CBCC for the past several years. She has attended each Gift of Life Breakfast and in 2010 was asked by CBCC Executive Director Beth Beck to design a special lapel pin for the staff. The butterfly lapel pin was born and became an instant hit at the 2010 Gift of Life Breakfast.
