The mission of the TMKF is two-fold:

* We are committed to eliminating cancers affecting women by supporting top medical scientists who are searching for a cure for breast, uterine, cervical and ovarian cancers.  

* We are committed to ending the epidemic of domestic violence by providing grants to women's shelters and supporting community outreach programs.

Since the Foundation began in 1996, it has granted $50 million dollars to organizations fighting cancer and violence against women.

Our hearts are broken as all of us in the Mary Kay family say good-bye to a Mary Kay sweetheart, our beautiful Lise Clark. After a valiant fight with cancer, Lise passed into eternity on August 2, 2013, but left a legacy that will continue to light the way for so many whose lives she touched during her Mary Kay career. Lise believed her mission was to “enroll, empower, enrich and encourage women in their dreams.” Her desire was for all of the leaders in her National area to see what it was like to be at the top and learn how to be more effective in the world.

Lise began her Mary Kay business in 1984 and was so enthusiastic and so determined, she laughingly referred to herself as a “bulldozer.” Nothing was going to stop her from reaching the top. Within two years, she became an Independent Sales Director. One person who joined her unit was equally determined and that was her precious sister, Monique Balboa. The two together were a driving force, and soon Monique also became a Sales Director. Both began charting their course to become National Sales Directors. That dream became a reality for both of them in 2002. They were the very first sisters to achieve this pinnacle of success in Mary Kay, and our dear Mary Kay Ash was so very proud of them. The pride did not stop there, however, as their sister, Independent Future Sales Director Renee Thevenet-Rodbell also became part of the dream.

Along the way, Lise fought a courageous battle with breast cancer. With her husband, Randall, three beautiful children, daughter Kaitlin, and sons Wyndham and Brendan, sisters and family who loved her and many Mary Kay friends to support her, Lise tackled cancer with the same determination that gave her so much success in her career. Rather than despair, she took cancer in stride and ultimately found that the struggle and suffering built her faith, strengthened her marriage and gave her great compassion for others.

That compassion and compelling spirit are just some of the things we will miss when we think of Lise. It hurts to say good-bye, but we can also say, “Well done, Lise.” You burned your candle brightly and the light will linger in our hearts, as we carry on.
