Evelyn Lauder The Road Has Come To An End.

Evelyn Lauder, the daughter-in-law to Estee Lauder and responsible for working with the Lauder cosmetics line has passed on.

Although, her last name says it all, Evelyn was best known for stamping the breast cancer pink ribbon symbol, that we all have grown to utilize and love.

Mrs. Lauder also worked on the pink ribbon campaign in 1992 with the editor of Self magazine and launched the movement of what we now refer to as breast cancer awareness.

Since, Mrs. Lauder was a breast cancer survivor that subject was very dear to her heart. So she also raised money to establish the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, which opened in 2009.

Mrs. Lauder life ended, November 12th, 2011 at the age of 75.
