Honoring Lara MacGregor

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we share news of the passing of our 2021 L’Oréal Paris Women of Worth National Honoree, Lara MacGregor. A beloved wife, mother and friend, Lara leaves behind a legacy of compassion, advocacy and the joyful pursuit of living every day to the fullest.

As the founder of Hope Scarves, Lara supported women like herself facing cancer through a simple gesture of kindness: the exchange of head scarves and stories of hope from courageous survivors. Ten years on from the organization’s infancy, Hope Scarves has delivered over 20,000 scarves across the globe and raised over $1.5 million for metastatic breast cancer research.
