Iris is proud to be a ten year breast cancer survivor who is thriving and loves that her passion has become a successful non-profit to help others. Chemocessories mission is to help women with cancer to hold on to their strength and sense of themselves during treatment. They create personalized sets of accessories including jewelry, scarves and turbans, that are designed to lift spirits and remind each woman that treatment in no way diminishes the beautiful woman within.
