Remember your love stolen by breast cancer with Luca + Danni jewelry | GIVEAWAY
|This post is in partnership with Luca + Danni.|
and all of us know someone affected by breast cancer - someone we know who has had it and survived or who has died because of it.
It's such a frustrating disease because it takes something mostly identifies us as women and suddenly makes it it our enemy - our breasts.
In 2011 the doctor discovered a lump in my right breast and almost immediately declared it benign. But for the next two years I had to get mammograms every six months, to make sure his diagnosis was correct. That lump is still there, and I just check on it every month or so.
That's a brief summary of my experience - which admittedly, is a very blessed one. However, one of my best friend's lost her mother to breast cancer in 2006. In 2003, I knew a 28 year-old woman who had discovered and survived the disease. She is now 43, and has survived it a total of three times!
#FBreastCancerI was more than happy to wear Luca + Danni on my recent trip/shoot for my travel show this week. Luca + Danni was born out of the simple yet powerful belief that dreams can come true.
In April 2013, Fred, the creator of the jewelry line lost his younger brother Danny in a difficult battle with Leukemia – he was 33 years old. Danny’s dream was to create a unique line of handcrafted, American-made jewelry that inspired others through the journey of life. Fueled by his brother's passion and a burning desire to carry forth his vision, Luca + Danni was born.
You can support Breast Cancer Awareness with Luca + Danni's recreation of their best selling angel wing heart charm. It comes is a beautiful pink jeweled pin and necklace.
But my favorite is the hand made natural brass oxidized wire-wrapped bangle bracelet with hook and catch closure.
|(It also comes in silver plated.)|
I adore the clasp. It's strong and so easy to close. (No extra tools needed!)
The best thing is that 20% of proceeds from this bracelet are proudly donated to the Gloria Gemma Foundation.
