Marie's Gift


GlyMed Plus is helping breast cancer survivors by donating GlyMed Plus professional products during rehabilitation of the skin after the harsh effects of cancer treatment. This program is called Marie’s Gift, in honor of Christine Heathman’s Aunt, Marie Smith Chakirian. Marie passed away in September 1996, but left a legacy of courage for cancer survivors everywhere, including the co-founding of Reach to Recovery sponsored by the American Cancer Society.

Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil

Christine with Miles the Monkey


Christine Heathman, Master Aesthetician, CEO and Founder of GlyMed Plus and the GlyMed Plus Institute of Skin Science™ releases the following statement via Raffles Entertainment regarding the anti-bullying campaign "Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil" and the anti-bullying mascot Miles the Monkey:


"The passion behind my commitment to support the anti-bullying campaign 'Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil' stem from my own raw bullying experiences that still are a vivid snap shot in my mind. As a child and teen, I experienced bullying from family members and school mates because I was a thin girl, plus I had severe acne break-outs. The bullying was unrelenting & soul destroying. However, I refused to allow the taunting and physical violence I endured by the hands of these bullies to define who I was then, and who I am today.

"When I started my skin care company GlyMed Plus 25 years ago, my commitment to help children and teens with horrible acne was one of the first and foremost projects that I had to accomplish. I did this so children would not endure bullying because of a bad skin condition. I still continue on this mission, and I am pleased to join forces with Artist for Global Unity in support of 'Hear No Evil, See No Evil, Speak No Evil.' It's time to bring attention to the epidemic of bullying by making our voices heard. One way we can make a difference is by reaching out to our law enforcement and law makers for new laws and consequences of these bullying assaults.

"It does not matter to a bully if you are pretty, skinny, overweight, black, white, brown, yellow, gay, straight, family, stranger! Bullies have an agenda! Please join me with GlyMed Plus, Artist for Global Unity, and Miles The Monkey to put an end to bullying.

"We all can make it happen."

Alzheimer's Association



Christine and her Dad


"I was the oldest of eight children and I have to say my dad never got in my way. I really wanted to explore and my dad was always telling me I could do what I wanted to do. I thank him for that. He was really a good man that gave me that empowerment to go on."


Nobody should suffer the debilitating effects of Alzheimer's.

Christine's father suffered from Alzheimer's, and she helplessly watched him deteriorate from the terrible disease. Because of her personal experience, Christine donates generously in support of a search for a cure for Alzheimer's. She does not want to see anyone else suffer as she and her father suffered.

"To eliminate Alzheimer’s disease through the advancement of research; to provide and enhance care and support for all affected; and to reduce the risk of dementia through the promotion of brain health." (Alzheimer's Association Mission Statement)

Wounded Warrior Project


 


Christine Heathman has a great love for her country, the United States of America. She comes from a family with a proud military heritage. Her grandfather answered the call to serve his country during World War II. Christine has great respect for every man and woman who is willing to put their life on the line to protect the freedoms that we enjoy.

But Christine saw how World War II affected her grandfather, both physically and psychologically, in his life after the war. She donates monthly to the Wounded Warrior Project® to honor the service and the sacrifice of the American soldier.

"Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families. On that date, America watched in horror as approximately 3,000 people died including hundreds of firefighters and rescue workers. Many warriors note a sense of duty to volunteer for the military following these tragic events." (WWP Who We Serve)
