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!

I don't believe it. But it's true!!!!! Thanks to your help, I had raised $1,000 dollars by the spring. Hopefully this will help make a difference. I am busy preparing for my Bat Mitzvah (which is coming up soon) but I am still taking orders.
You all are fantastic and I couldn't have raised this much without you.
Thank you so much!

  1. Very impressed with all you've put into this project - even though I am your dad and have seen it with my own eyes. Way to go, Elsa!
