my mother was recently diagnosed with multiple myeloma, or bone marrow cancer. it has, of course, been extremely difficult. when i tried to think of something i could do, this was all i could come up with. i made a cuff bracelet that says, "be joyful in your hope, patient in your affliction, and faithful in your prayers", which is a scripture my aunt sent to me. i am not a traditionally religious person, but that really fit the situation and i knew she would love it. on the inside i wrote "my body is strong and healthy". once i finished it i decided there was more i could do. i could use this bracelet to help more than just my mom. so i am selling these in my etsy shop and 10% of the proceeds will go to the multiple myeloma research foundation.
