Giving & Community

The Giv Shoppe is one part of a broad community of care we’re building. Together, we support survivors, previvors and caregivers.


Why We Do It

In 2019, Lauren Lopriore started Liv & Let- Thriving Through Breast Cancer to offer the resources she needed during her own fight with cancer and then as a support for friends who had been diagnosed with cancer. Her blog became an information hub of events, information and product recommendations for those who have recently been diagnosed, those going through treatment, those who are learning about their family history and interested in prevention as well as for caregivers. In sharing her story as a young adult cancer survivor, Lauren is creating space and empowering others impacted by breast cancer including previvors, survivors and caregivers.

As a part of that ongoing mission and effort, a percentage of proceeds from the Giv Shoppe will be donated to charities empowering the breast cancer, cancer and mental health communities through research, education and care.

Monthly Donated Crates

Beyond our yearly giving initiative, we look for opportunities to bring love, support and delight to one individual a month by sending a donated care kit to a nominated member or partner of the Liv & Let community.

Nominate Someone for a Monthly Crate

Have a previvor, survivor or caregiver you’d like to see receive a personalized gift of care? Tell us a little about them in the form, and they’ll be in consideration for our monthly donated crate.

*Please nominate one person per month
