Like many others, cancer has affected my family's life. My aunt and great aunt are breast cancer survivors, another great aunt is a uterine cancer survivor, and my grandmother died of bile duct cancer. In addition, a great grandfather died of esophageal cancer, a great grandmother of breast cancer, a great uncle of melanoma, another great uncle of intestinal cancer, and finally, my aunt's father passed away from prostate cancer and melanoma.

It's a tradition at my temple, Shir Tikvah, for B'nai Mitzvah students to give back to a cause they choose because it is significant to them. I've chosen to donate to the American Cancer Society in hope of finding a cure for this terrible disease.

I am making beaded bracelets using bead colors that represent many common forms of cancer. All proceeds will be donated to the ACS. Please consider helping to support my cause.

Thank you!

Starting up!

I'm so excited to have started. I have all my supplies and already have made a bunch of basic bracelets. I will be selling at school, Hebrew School, and other events that will be donating to cancer foundations. Soon I'll figure out when and where these events will be taking place.
