Georgia Cord was a loving wife, mother, and artist. She saw beauty in everything and touched the hearts of everyone around her. All who knew Georgia loved her for her creativity, style, and sincere kindness. She was truly one of a kind, and her generous spirit and compassion lives on through The Peony Project.
Founded in Los Angeles in 2012 under the umbrella of the Lynne Cohen Foundation, The Peony Project was inspired by Georgia Cord's life and battle with breast cancer. Georgia's family and friends felt helpless watching her fight. They now transform their loss into good by empowering others, and raising awareness and funds for the crusade against women's cancers.
Georgia's friends and family came together at The Peony Project's one time benefit evening on April 26th, 2014 to remember Georgia, tend the 'Peony garden,' and plant seeds for a brighter future. The power of their love for Georgia will be felt by the many at-risk women whose lives are now touched, and perhaps saved, by the over $300,000 raised in her memory.
Georgia's oldest daughter, KC, graduated from Dartmouth in June of 2016. Her youngest daughter, Lexi, is working in Denver in the field of early childcare. Both girls are spreading their wings, and radiate Georgia in their every laugh and smile.
