Ramy Gafni Beauty Raffle for Cancer

Makeup artist and skincare expert to the stars Ramy Gafni conquered cancer. Diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in 1997, he worked full-time while undergoing chemotherapy and radiation, until he was let go from his job, a boss telling him, “You’re not the pretty boy we hired.” But that didn’t stop him. Gafni — whose mom, Rachel, successfully battled Hodgkin’s, breast cancer and lymphoma — went on to launch his own company, and since, he’s appeared on The Oprah Winfrey Show, E! and more. To celebrate his success and survival, Gafni is hosting a ‘beauty lottery’ to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Purchase a $50 raffle ticket on for a chance to win Gafni’s entire line of cosmetics, valued at $1400. The deadline to grab tickets is May 21; a winner will be announced May 22.
