Love In A Bracelet Gives Back

I donate a portion of my profits from website sales of Healing Grief and Loss Bracelets to Heartworks Foundation.

Taken from the Heartworks website –

“Heartworks is a local grassroots movement of women committed to replicating and sustaining the palpable kindness witnessed in the wake after September 11, 2001. Inspired by the mutual healing that takes place through receiving and giving, we offer hope to people in our community experiencing acute illness, injury, or grief within the last 14 months, while taking part in our own self-growth.”

I donate to Heartworks in memory of my former fiance, Scott Unger. I witnessed firsthand the power of support that he received from others. Scott was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma at the age of 26. This was a particularly cruel twist of fate. He had already survived a horrific car accident with three weeks in a coma and several months of inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. He was subsequently struck by lightning, only to be diagnosed with cancer a couple years later at such a young age, just three months into our engagement. His motto in life was, “There is no “I” in “T-E-A-M”, and this was particularly true during his fight for his life. Every friend, family member, doctor, and nurse was a member of his team.

Having a team and knowing that others were supporting him made a huge positive impact on him, particularly during the last days of his life. During his treatment, after he passed away, and after my father’s death six weeks later, the love bestowed upon me is what helped me to get through those difficult days. I wish to carry that forward by contributing to Heartworks’ mission.
