I received one of Mel’s bracelets from a dear friend from Boston. She told me the story behind the bracelet. Even though I have not had cancer, I am close to many who have and wearing the bracelet makes a statement. It is also lovely and I pass the tradition on to my friends and family whenever possible. Once while flying home from Florida, the hostess on the plane had on a bracelet like mine. We shared a “look” and a warm smile. There was no need to say any more. We were members of the same club.
