Mel’s Bracelet is something I have worn often. I received it when my mom had breast cancer. She is cancer-free right now. I bought one for a friend when her mom was going through cancer treatments. I have also had a best friend lose her battle to leukemia. My daughter was then diagnosed with epilepsy. Throughout it all, the different colored stones remind me of all of the different hardships my family/friends have been through. I wear it, and it gives me hope and strength.
