Colour Of Cancer Memory Bracelets- Honouring Hideki ...
I finally have a moment to post some pictures of my Colours Of Cancer Memory Bracelets I made for a friend of mine at Christmas. These bracelets are very special because my friend Setsu, lost her husband last year to cancer and wanted to give all those that helped her through this difficult time a bracelet. These wonderful friends were there to hold her when she broke down, comfort her when she needed it, look after her 3 beautiful children and just be there for support and understanding. It was a very difficult time for my friend and she really wanted to give these friends something special....something to demonstrate her gratitude to her friends but most of all something for them to remember her beloved Hideki . I hope these Colours Of Cancer Memory Bracelets will do just that.
Each bracelet has a colourful bead that represents all the forms of cancer which are:
Dark Green- Kidney Cancer
Teal- Ovarian Cancer
Purple- Pancreatic Cancer
Pink- Breast Cancer
Dark Blue- Colon Cancer
Lavendar- General Cancer Awareness
Grey- Brain Cancer
Lime Green- Lymphoma
Gold- Childhood Cancers
Clear/ White- Lung Cancer
To make the bracelets unique to each of Setsu's friends and her 2 daughters I added special charms so they were personal and something they will always treasure. It's truly tragic that someone so young should lose their husband and three little children have to grow up without their daddy. You are always in my thoughts Setsu and I am humbled to have been chosen to honour your husbands memory. God Bless you and your family. XOXOX
