Patricia Nash Announces #CarryMeThrough Contest Winner!

12/10/2014

Patricia Nash has announced the winning mother & daughter of the all-inclusive trip to Italy from the brand’s #CarryMeThrough Campaign held during Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Over the past few years while at personal appearances in major department stores across the country, Patricia began to notice two to three generations of women coming into to shop together – laughing and sharing their stories with the designer. She felt inspired by this connection among grandmothers, mothers and daughters. Nash, herself, shared that same bond with her own mother and daughter that started through a mutual love for handbags, the building block to start her own handbag line. Seeking to share this with other mothers and daughters around the U.S., the brand launched the #CarryMeThrough campaign, asking them to submit their inspirational breast cancer story through the brand’s website of how their relationship helped support and overcome that challenging time in their life.

 

With over thousands of applicants entered into the campaign, Patricia was overwhelmed with the stories and the amount of love and strength each participant shared. She thought the winner was impossible to pick out but finally decided on Nicole Battaglia’s story of her and her mother’s journey through breast cancer. Nicole’s mother has been diagnosed with breast cancer twice, the first time when Nicole was very young, leading to two mastectomies, the latter of which was followed by chemotherapy and radiation. She shared her guilt of her embarrassment she felt toward her mother, a woman who was once strong, now weak. Her mother, however, was a story of strength – never ashamed of her cancer, she aided others who were alone and afraid. She also became involved in the Susan G. Komen Foundation as well as helped chair the Race For the Cure in Arizona. From the experiences Nicole has been through with her mother, from changing her wounds, to emptying her drain tubes and being her personal nurse, she considers her mother her best friend and has been inspired to pursue a career in helping others.

 

Nicole since become a registered nurse working toward her passion to one day work in Oncology.

 

Nicole and her mother will travel to Italy in the Spring with their two favorite Patricia Nash handbags that will also be gifted to them through this campaign. Patricia Nash Designs will continue to share the details on their journey to Italy and life after cancer.
