CEW Foundation

The Cosmetic Executive Women Foundation, founded in 1993, is a nonprofit 501(c)3 charitable organization dedicated to helping women. In 2001, the Foundation launched Cancer and Careers. This groundbreaking program is dedicated to empowering and educating people with cancer to thrive in their workplace by providing expert advice, interactive tools and educational events. Through a comprehensive website, free publications, career coaching, and a series of support groups and educational seminars for employees with cancer and their healthcare providers and coworkers, Cancer and Careers strives to eliminate fear and uncertainty for working people with cancer.

All donations to CEW Foundation support Cancer and Careers’ ongoing activities. For information on Cancer and Careers, click here: www.cancerandcareers.org.
