Our 20-crystal cancer awareness bracelet started from a dream – a dream to honour the memory of a precious sister, Mary, who had lost her struggle with this horrible disease; a dream to raise funds for and awareness of those affected by cancer; and a dream to create something beautiful to commemorate and support loved ones.
This bracelet was used in a campaign that raised over $2.5 million for cancer care in Newfoundland and Labrador. Each crystal represents a different form of cancer. We continue to make our Hope Crystals bracelets here, and a portion goes to support Daffodil Place in St. John’s.
We have had people tell us that they feel a very strong connection with our bracelet. It has been a source of comfort as well as a starting point for initiating conversations about the cancers that have affected their lives.
