The goal of The Libby Ross Foundation OM Yoga Program is to promote healing and a sense of well being for breast cancer survivors. The program provides support for women who have had or are undergoing surgery, radiation or chemotherapy for breast cancer. In conjunction with OM yoga center in New York, the yoga program empowers women to get back in touch with their bodies through breathing techniques and gentle movements.

In addition to hosting this special Mother's Day auction, Swarovski will donate $75,000 to The Libby Ross Foundation OM Yoga Program from the sales of its pink ribbon charm and pink heart necklace. This brings Swarovski's total donation to date to $135,000. Both products are available at Swarovski Gallery stores nationwide, through authorized Swarovski retailers and at http://www.swarovski.com.

"Swarovski's gift this year will help us bring the Yoga Program to more women than ever before. We can't think of a better way to celebrate Mother's Day -- helping bring peace and strength to mothers, daughters and sisters everywhere who are fighting this disease," said Lori Ross, co-founder of the Libby Ross Foundation. Ms. Ross founded the organization in 1999 in loving memory of her mother, Elizabeth "Libby" Ross, who lost her battle with breast cancer on July 24, 1998.
