I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 39 years old. Since my journey with the disease, I have had a miracle baby at 43 and have been involved with many cancer support organizations, including volunteer work at Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital. Listening to the patients, I recognize the fear in their voices and their vulnerability to COVID-19 and its harmful effects on people with pre-existing conditions. I wanted to do something actionable to fight the coronavirus by making high-quality masks in fashionable colors with funny mottos, monograms, corporate logos, memorable movie quotes and inspirational sayings. “Say it on a mask” is my motto. I am hoping that the public will embrace the use of masks.

Through my connections in the breast cancer world and from my entertainment industry background, I created this inspirational line of masks with logos for Amy Robach (anchor of “Good Morning America” and host of “20/20”). For every mask sold from Amy’s line, MaskMottos donates a mask to the 5 Under 40 Cancer Foundation. 5 Under 40’s mission is to provide funding for medical, wellness and beauty services to women under the age of 40 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, or have tested positive for the BRCA gene. Maskmottos has also donated 80 Logo Masks covered by News 12 Connecticut to the Weston, Ct. First Responders with gratitude for their quick response when Niko"s father suffered a Pulmonary Embolism a few weeks ago. Without their help, his condition is 100 percent fatal.

Unfortunately, it took a shocking diagnosis for me to find my true passion, which is to reduce the spread of COVID and help the public incorporate face masks and mask accessories into their everyday wear.
