PRESS RELEASE NOV 13, 2018 08:00 EST
SALT LAKE CITY, UT—November 6, 2018—Utah-based organic health and beauty company Coconu announced their pledge to donate a portion of product sales to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance (OCRA), helping women in the fight against ovarian cancer. This partnership aligns with the company’s mission to bring health and happiness to women, increasing their capacity for intimacy, connection, and confidence. By pledging donations to OCRA, they hope to raise awareness and funding for research to combat this devastating disease that affects the lives of so many women and their families.
OCRA is a non-profit organization dedicated to ovarian cancer research, education, and advocacy to help save women's lives. Research shows that one in 79 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer in their lifetime. Due to a lack of early symptoms or detection screenings, these diagnoses typically occur when the disease is advanced. For this reason, it’s called the "silent killer" and is the fifth deadliest form of cancer for women.
Coconu founders Sarah Warnick Belzer and Taylor Warnick know the impact of this disease firsthand as it took the life of their mother and their children's grandmother, Kathy Warnick, when she was just 58. This came only one year after her diagnosis, despite Kathy's commitment to personal health and her work in the medical field.
President Sarah Warnick Belzer said, “We believe the way to make progress against ovarian cancer is through supporting research in this area. Coconu chooses to give back by donating 10% of all purchases of our organic personal lubricants to OCRA, in honor of Kathy Warnick—a woman who gave tirelessly to her community.”
Founded in Salt Lake City, UT in 2012, Coconu is committed to helping women lead healthier, happier lives by offering 100% safe and organic health and beauty products. The company builds its product line on the core belief that integrity and transparency come first. Coconu strives to make the world a safer place with natural products and ingredients you can trust.
