Kara is ‘Fighting Pretty’

October 28, 2013

Kara Skaflestad is a global marketing manager here at Bloomberg, but a pair of pink boxing gloves – a gift from a friend – inspired her to do more. Kara is a cancer survivor and knows first-hand the difficulty of coping with a life-threatening disease. The boxing gloves she received during her own treatment led her to start a non-profit group that wants to help women battling cancer feel strong and beautiful. Today, Fighting Pretty is sending care packages to women all over the U.S. Your donated goods or financial contributions help support the group’s activities.
