In 2010 glamjulz started the “3 Little Wishes Fund” which is an ongoing project where every Christmas season we donate a percentage of the sales from a specially designed glamjulz piece towards families living with cancer. We had amazing success with this last year and love the fact that our friends out there (that’s you) wanted to help out.
This year we present to you the glamjulz Swarovski Crystal Snowflake Bracelet, and are honoured to introduce you to Christine and her Family.
Christine is a devoted wife, a mother of two children, aged 12 and 14, and has been fighting a battle with breast cancer for more than 6 years.
After Christine’s initial diagnosis, a mastectomy, extensive chemotherapy and radiation then followed. Even after all of that, the cancer returned to the original site and has subsequently spread to her remaining breast.
She has undergone a number of drug-based treatments including specific targeted therapies offered through several drug trials at Sunnybrook and Princess Margaret Hospitals, but the tumour presence is described as advance stage localized cancer, and at this point, considered too deep for further surgery. Christine now relies heavily on pain and nausea medication for relief, while facing an emotionally charged, painful and draining battle.
It’s 2011, and the definition of a “Family” has changed dramatically just over the last decade. Whether it be the classic definition of a family or one Mother, one Father, Heterosexual, Homosexual, young, old, black, white, biological, adopted, dogs, cats, or maybe your family is the group of your closest friends, we all need people around us for love and support.
We at glamjulz like to think that deep within everyone is the ability to share that love to someone outside of their family who may need a little extra support. Last year you proved this to be true, and we hope that you can help this year, keep this family in your thoughts and cherish every single day you have with the people that you love.
Thank you for your support,
Monica and Wayne
