Growing up, my mom would always talk to me about her dad and how great of a man he was. I still get so upset that I never had the opportunity to meet him. 29 years ago he passed away from a heart attack. My dad was on his way to meet with him and ask for his blessing to marry my mom, and just like that, he was gone. No warning, nothing. Heart health is such an important thing to always be aware of. Tragedies happen all the time that I feel can be prevented. So I choose to be aware and wear a red AWARE necklace in support of my mom and her dad. I want to spread the awareness of heart diseases and how important it is to keep a healthy heart after all a healthy heart is a happy heart ❤️🔻.
Take the time to learn how you can become stronger and filled with hope from Ritzie Williams’ story about cancer.
I had always thought of cancer as a mountain that couldn't be moved. It was something that just happened at some point and when it did, life was over... My grandmother had multiple battles with cancer in multiple areas starting at a young age. She was victorious time after time and lived way past expectancy. I just want to share my
#awarestory and say fight on! To those that have cancer, have lost someone to cancer, or know someone with cancer, be strong and never lose hope!
Don’t lose hope from a diagnosis when you invest in cancer jewelry to spread awareness.
Meet Sarah Rohe a woman who is passionate about mental illness and learning to deal with anxiety:
It is so important to bring awareness to mental illness and to let the people in our lives that battle with it know they are loved, courageous, and are Lil tough cookies that don't need to go through it alone.
To all the trifling boys and girls who have an eating disorder or anxiety disorder, you are IMPORTANT and you too can be a huge part of bringing awareness to mental illness. You can do this by noticing signs of friends/strangers that are struggling/progressing that others might not even pay attention to.
A simple recognition of saying things like, "are you doing okay?" "If you feel comfortable talking about it, I am here for you." "I noticed the marks on your arms are scars and not scabs, I'm proud of you." "Did you eat today?" These small gestures can change someone.
Remember you ARE NOT A BURDEN. It is not weak or embarrassing to seek help or therapy. You can still be a bad bitch and open up.
Sarah’s story is just one of many tales about mental illness and internal scars. If you are dealing with anxiety or you have a loved one who is, then educate people on this mental illness with jewelry for a cause.
Read about Yohanna Flores’ story and learn how you can find strength even in the darkest of times.
When I first heard, "your test results came back for invasive ductal carcinoma" I felt my life was slipping out of my hands and losing control of it. As the nurse continued to explain my next steps, all I could think of was, "I'm going to die."
I didn't know much about breast cancer so when I heard "invasive" I thought it was already spread all over my body. No one wants to hear the word cancer and what I have learned from this and other survivors is that cancer isn't a death sentence.
It's not an easy journey. Cancer affects the patient and their loved ones. It takes a toll on you in every aspect possible emotional, physical, and mentally. For anyone who is going through cancer, remember if God brings you to it, he will bring you through it. Have faith! & fight! The will to survive will shine brighter than the storm!
As individuals, it's our responsibility to be aware and proactive of our health. Early detection saves lives! Check for any symptoms, changes, and abnormalities. If you know things don't feel right, see a doctor or ask for a second opinion. Cancer can happen at any age, it does not discriminate. I hope that by sharing my journey, it helps create more awareness and knowledge about breast cancer which can affect both men and women.
If you feel strongly about cancer, then take the time to support educating others with breast cancer jewelry. Our breast cancer jewelry will provide awareness and support for this disease.
Meet Angel Lisette a woman who is learning how to overcome being self-conscious about Lupus.
Lately, I've been hiding my skin in long layered clothes or all black solid clothing in fear of people assuming I have rashes and ringworms in relation to being dirty. But no, these are not common rashes/circles these are Lupus flare-ups. I have these marks all throughout my body, on my back, and throughout my arms my legs. I'm growing to admire all of them. I was once embarrassed, but now, I'm embracing all that Lupus does to my body and want to help raise awareness for anyone else going through what I am.
