RESEDA, Calif.  Girlfriends Films has donated $1,000 in support of Alexa Smart, of the law offices of Piccionelli & Sarno, as she takes part in the 2012 Santa Barbara Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

The company said that the $1,000 donation toher fundraising efforts acts as the August selection for Girlfriends Films’ charity program.

The two-day, 39-mile walk occurs Sept. 22 and 23, as participants walk to raise awareness of breast cancer and money for research and prevention. Girlfriends Films calls on its strong community of fans and followers to join Smart in assisting the 2012 Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.

An employee of Piccionelli & Sarno, Smart is actively involved in the adult industry. Company owner Gregory A. Piccionelli, Esq. is regarded as one of the nation’s leading adult entertainment attorneys and is an upcoming guest on Girlfriends Films talk show “The Kinky & Creepy Show,” exclusively on GFFMembers.com.

“Breast cancer has been in my inner circle for as long as I can remember,” Smart said. “My mom's best friend was first diagnosed with breast cancer in October 1997. She had a double mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Then in October 1998, she was diagnosed again with breast cancer. She underwent chemotherapy and radiation treatments a second time, and today she is cancer free.” Alexa continues, “In August 2011, I was informed my Aunt had stage 2 breast cancer. She was treated aggressively with a lumpectomy, chemotherapy, and radiation. The wound from the lumpectomy became infected, due to the chemotherapy and radiation, but the infection is not set to be fully gone until 2013. In addition, a dear friend of the family was also diagnosed last year with stage 2 breast cancer. She opted for a mastectomy.

“I am walking for those men and women who are fighting the disease,” Smart said. “Those who have yet been diagnosed, those who have survived, and those who have lost the fight. I sincerely thank Girlfriends Films for its generous contribution. The donation will have an impact in the fight for the cure.”
