October Shoe Shopping Benefits Cancer Research

New heels can help heal this October, with your quest for the perfect pumps supporting Cedars-Sinai in the fight against breast cancer. Cedars-Sinai Cancer will once again be a beneficiary of the annual QVC Presents "FFANY Shoes on Sale" fundraiser, now in its 26th year.

Shoppers get to pick from more than 70,000 pairs of brand name shoes, donated shoes and accessories at sale prices—at least half off—with a minimum of 80% of the purchase price benefiting breast cancer research and education.

The sale is live online at qvc.com/ffany from now through the end of October. There will also be a "tune-in" event taking place live from New York City today from 3-6 p.m. PT on QVC's TV network and website. Check local listings for channel information.

This is the eighth year Cedars-Sinai Cancer has received a grant from the organization to boost the breast cancer research and education spearheaded by Armando E. Giuliano, MD, the executive vice chair of Surgery for Surgical Oncology, co-director of the Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center—A Project of Women's Guild and associate director of Surgical Oncology at Cedars-Sinai Cancer.

The Fashion Footwear Association of New York (FFANY) is composed of more than 300 community-conscious and charitable shoemakers. Its Fashion Footwear Charitable Foundation has linked up with QVC to raise more than $57 million to back breast cancer research for some of the top breast cancer hospitals in the nation. FFANY's cumulative giving to Cedars- Sinai is $1.6 million.
