About our Tapanga's Rose Scent
Tapanga is my high school best friend’s daughter. She is 17 and has been recently diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Synovial Sarcoma that effects only 1-3 out of every million people. Tapanga and her parents were extremely grateful to learn that the cancer had not spread to her lymph nodes, lungs or any other vital organs. However, it is still in the wrapped around the main bones in her foot. She was given 3 options for treatment, all three weren't the best. Amputation was the option that Tapanga and her parents have decided to go with.
Tapanga's father is a Iraqi War Veteran. As a civilian, he earns a modest income, but it is often a struggle to make ends meet for his family of 6. And the bills are about to become insurmountable. Tapanga's amputation surgery will involve a week in the children's hospital as well as a custom prosthesis, medications, possible radiation or chemo therapy, physical therapy and many, many doctors appointments as she learns how to walk again and to care for her newly altered body.
Here at Dream Polish, we are joining Team Tapanga by releasing a limited edition scent called “Tapanga’s Rose.” Tapanga, like many of us, is a nail fanatic! We want to show her and her family the generosity of the nail community. It is her scent of choice, and also her middle name. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of Tapanga’s Rose scented products will go to her YouCaring fund. Please join us in making her recovery a success!
Tapanga’s Rose is available in the following products:
Gem Glow Cuticle Balm - all sizes
