New Fashion Website
La Belle Dolce - New Fashion Website Launch
With a fabulous focus on fashion and breast cancer awareness.
Duluth, MN (PRWeb) November 29, 2006 -- The new fashion website, La Belle Dolce (www.labelledolce.com), will officially launch on the internet. La Belle Dolces innovative take on celebrity fashion and breast cancer awareness is unique among other internet fashion websites, in that it marries great clothes with a good cause.
At La Belle Dolce, you can find the latest trends in what celebrities are wearing, and also learn about an important cause; the fight against breast cancer and lung disease. Fashion and breast cancer awareness is close to owner Berta Lipperts heart: In the spring of 2004, my mother and best friend were both diagnosed with breast cancer and had their operations within hours of one another, said Lippert. So I wanted to create a website that reflects two of my passions; great clothes and breast cancer awareness.
Lippert is a former consultant and speaker on Environmental Health and Safety, and is plunging into her first foray in the fashion retail business. While she found success in her former profession, she is now looking forward to her fashion career.
Entering the fashion world was quite a leap from the highly regulated and technical industry Ive been a part of the past 12 years, but I simply approached it with the same customer focus I had then. I wanted to create a site that was fun, easy to navigate, and full of great products that include well known celebrity fashions, and some lesser known treasures as well, said Lippert.
Besides being able to pick up great bags by Melie Bianco, beauty products by Miso Pretty, and the same cute jewelry that Eva Longoria wears, La Belle Dolce customers will be able to participate in La Belle Dolces Giving Back campaign. Through this program, Lippert will donate a portion of all of her proceeds to organizations fighting against Breast Cancer and Lung Disease. Lippert has donated thousands of dollars towards the treatment and research for cancer with this same program before, and she hopes to surpass that success with La Belle Dolce.
La Belle Dolce supports the fight against breast cancer even in their products, and offers a variety of fashionable breast cancer awareness items, such as I Care and Believe tees and baseball caps. Visitors to the website can also honor and remember individuals who have been affected by cancer through the Giving Back program. No donation or purchase is required to honor a loved one who has been impacted by breast cancer or lung disease, and their picture and a short bio will be listed on a tribute page on the La Belle Dolce website.
In all, Lippert hopes that her passion for fashion and the fight against cancer and lung disease will be realized by others who visit La Belle Dolce.
I really want my customers to have a fun shopping experience with unmatched enthusiasm and customer service from La Belle Dolce, said Lippert. In addition, they can feel good knowing that their purchase is contributing to the fight against breast cancer and lung disease. Im committed to giving back and donate a portion of proceeds from ALL sales, ALL the time. Not just the Think Pink items, and not just in October. I want each sale, every day to make a difference.

Did Unitedhealth/Pacificare Deceived Cancer Patient?
New Lawsuit Alleges Unitedhealth/Pacificare Deceived Cancer Patient
New Lawsuit Alleges Pacificare Set Course Of Deception To Avoid Claims and Cancel Policy of 34 Year Old Kidney Cancer Patient To Increase Company Profits.
Irvine, CA (PRWeb) November 18, 2006 -- UnitedHealth Group, the nations second largest health insurer, and its subsidiary Pacificare of California were named in a lawsuit yesterday for canceling the health insurance policy and refusing to pay medical bills after a cancer patient sought treatment. (D'ANNA vs PACIFICARE OF CALIFORNIA #GIN057028)
The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of San Diego by attorneys Robert K. Scott and Scott Mahoney of the Irvine-based Law Offices of Robert K. Scott. The lawsuit adds UnitedHealth Group and Pacificare of California to the growing list of California insurers who have been accused of revoking health care polices after patients get sick.
UnitedHealth Group Inc Thursday announced a 38% jump in its third-quarter earnings, aided by gains from last years PacifiCare acquisition. Recent revelations of a "conflict of interest" have been reported at the DMHC during hearings on the merger between UnitedHealth and Pacificare in California.
"I was repulsed when I learned that the CEO of UnitedHealth Group had 1.6 Billion in stock options while I am being harassed by collection agencies for the medical bills Pacificare refused to pay", said Salvatore D'Anna, the Plaintiff in the lawsuit.
According to the lawsuit filed yesterday, UnitedHealth Group and Pacificare of California allegedly failed to properly manage the patient's cancer treatment and withheld information that put his life in jeopardy to avoid the cost of a second surgery to remove his kidney because of remaining cancer reported in his Pathology report.
Pacificare allegedly withheld the coverage decision for the second surgery until the patient flew across the country for the procedure. Submitted documents indicate Pacificare informed the patient the day before the surgery that they were denying coverage which forced the patient to ask his parents to loan him $25,000 for a down payment on the surgery. When the patient returned home, instead of offering to pay for the surgery, Pacificare allegedly sent a letter that purported to cancel the policy.
The Complaint against UnitedHealth Group and Pacificare can be read here.

(PRWEB) November 13, 2006 -- Nine year mesothelioma survivor Paul Kraus is scheduled to provide another inspiring teleconference to mesothelioma patients and their families on December 14 at 8:00 PM ET. Please call 619-261-7922 to register and listen to this extraordinary survivor discuss how he healed his cancer. Register today because there are only two spaces left for this popular teleconference.
In 1997, Paul Kraus was diagnosed with an aggressive cancer called mesothelioma. The cancer was so widespread that doctors told him there was little hope and that he should get his affairs in order. Rather than giving up, Mr. Kraus researched various treatment options and, with the help of his doctors, created his own path to healing. Today, over nine years later, he continues to enjoy a good quality of life. "Dr. Andrew Weil wrote that any illness can be conquered through radical lifestyle change because our bodies are made with powerful self-healing capacities. It was damn hard to make such radical changes, but I was determined to see them through," Paul Kraus said.
Mr. Kraus wrote an acclaimed book about his diagnosis and healing called: "Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers - A Patient's Guide." This book, available on Amazon.com, is one of the best-selling mesothelioma books in the world.
Wanting to provide hope, support, and inspiration, Mr. Kraus took the unusual step of hosting free telephone calls so that newly diagnosed mesothelioma patients and their family members would be able to speak directly to him.
During these teleconferences, Mr. Kraus describes how he handled his diagnosis, what he learned about the disease, the steps he took to heal his mesothelioma, and answers questions from patients and their loved ones. Topics usually include: new chemotherapy drugs, surgery, holistic approaches, vitamins and other supplements, clinical trials, anti-angiogenesis therapies, mind-body medicine, and doctor-patient relationships. Mr. Kraus is quick to point out that he is not a doctor and does not provide medical advice, but he inspires patients with his own insights, experience, and story of survival.
If you are a mesothelioma patient or a loved one of a mesothelioma patient and wish to listen-in to this free teleconference with mesothelioma survivor Paul Kraus, please call 619-261-7922 to register. Please register today because there are only two spaces left.
