He has toured the world as a guitar player (Nick Carter, Ashley Gearing), recorded with top-notch producers (Danny Rader, Shelly Yakus), and performed on television and radio stations across the country in addition to playing over 260 shows each year. Drawing from the folk, rock, and country acts from his mother’s vinyl collection such as James Taylor, CCR, and Bill Withers, his own brand of music reflects a deep love of carefully crafted lyrics and melody.

They also gave My Hope Chest 40 tickets for a special pink section of the NFL PINK Monday Night Football audience. Seats were enjoyed by patients on the My Hope Chest wait list, breast cancer survivors through Gulfcoast Oncology/FL Cancer Specialists, survivors who are friends of My Hope Chest and Angel volunteers.

Internet business! creates and sells complete, turnkey Internet businesses with everything needed to run a
successful online business. In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month and survivors everywhere, is excited to announce their Survive & Thrive Business Giveaway.

Survivors can submit a video to Pure-E-Commerece’s YouTube site or submit an essay via email sharing the story of how they have thrived after disease, tragedy or other life-changing event – now through the month of Oct. will select the finalists and post them to their site for fan voting. The winner will receive a complete turnkey website business package!

Surviving and thriving are both subjects CEO Jennifer Varner knows something about. Varner’s husband was diagnosed with cancer just 3 weeks after their wedding. Not long after, while her husband was undergoing treatment, Varner discovered she was pregnant. The young family beat the odds and beat cancer, and Varner went on to launch a successful Internet business.

Ten years later, Varner was again pregnant when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. She endured two surgeries and chemotherapy, fighting for her life while waiting for her baby to be born. Her son Kilian was born healthy, and both mother and baby proved that they would not only survive, but thrive!

The Survive & Thrive Business Giveaway will run throughout the month of October. Click to learn more about and the Survive & Thrive Business Giveaway.
