The Kady Haynes
Beauty for Ashes
Our daughter, Kady Haynes, died of Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC)
at the age of 30. Kady’s legacy of helping others inspired The Kady
Haynes Beauty for Ashes Project, a 501(c)(3) corporation.
Metastatic Breast Cancer robs families of so much, creating dev-
hope to continue Kady’s legacy of love and kindness by providing
Christmas gifts to women diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer
and their children in our community, allowing their families to enjoy
this special day free from some of the burdens and hardships that
cancer imposes on their lives at what should be the most joyous time
of the year.

zero expectations. Upon tasting the Florida Wines she realized that she
