Live your BEST LIFE with yEAHbestlife
raising funds for Lung Cancer Research

Erika Arquilla Hlavacek - Best Life

After being diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer at 42, Erika quickly became an advocate for lung cancer research, starting yEAHbestlife as a brand and non-profit dedicated to fundraising for lung cancer research. 

It is with a heavy heart that we share that on April 27, 2022 Erika passed away due to complications from the disease. She was surrounded by friends and family.

"We never know what the future holds. We just have TODAY. So don’t wait for something bad to happen. Live your LIFE! Live it the BEST way that you can! Say YES more often. Go outside of your comfort zone. Take the trip, learn the dance. Eat the donut. Love HARD.

It took cancer for me to wake up. Learn from me and start really LIVING. WHY NOT?"

A percentage of each sale goes to lung cancer research. Lung cancer is the #1 cancer killer of both men and women but receives significantly less federal government funding than other cancers. 

yEAHbestlife has raised $80,000!
