Rancho Santa Fe has an “angel” serving to bring awareness to breast cancer. Adrienne Falzon and her family moved to Rancho Santa Fe from New York City this past Fall, and according to her, it’s the best decision she has ever made.
In 2012, Falzon published an illustrated children’s book, “What Is An Angel?”. The artistry is done by Helen M. Salzberg.
Although the book is geared toward children, Falzon shared, many adults have embraced the book.
The inspiration for publishing the book came when Falzon first moved to Rancho Santa Fe and she came across a print story about a nonprofit organization named, Breast Cancer Angels.
“And of course it was the word ‘angels’ that got my attention and I wanted to know what it was about,” she said.
Falzon was inspired by Breast Cancer Angels and she wanted to help in some way. Today, the sales of her book in any particular city stays in that town to support local women fighting breast cancer. The funds help to offset costs for food programs, housing needs, clothing, medical co-pays, transportation, legal assistance, home healthcare and much more.
On May 8, Falzon will champion the inaugural “White Rose Luncheon” at the Santaluz Golf Club. Proceeds from the luncheon will go towards the Breast Cancer Angels San Diego Chapter as well as a percentage of Falzon’s book sales.
The White Rose Luncheon is coordinated with the spirit of Mother’s Day. It is an event to honor those who have lost their mother, have a sick mother, or have experienced the tragic loss of a child. This luncheon is a day of honor, reflection and a place to process those emotions.
“The angels from Breast Cancer Angels represent guidance, support, and healing,” Falzon said. “So for all of these women who are going through a very difficult time, in so many ways, the angels are right in there helping them along.”
