My Human Interest Story: Why I Am Raising Funds For Brain Cancer

Published on June 22, 2018 in Share Your Story

Hello there,
I am reaching out because I wanted to share my brain cancer story with you.

My name is Danielle and around 1.5 years ago, I lost my boyfriend of 5 years to brain cancer. To help with my grieving, I turned to my much-loved hobby of jewellery making and began making bracelets.

I created this Swarovski bracelet that I loved and then it crossed my mind how I could help raise money for the horrendous disease that took my 27 year old boyfriend’s life. I then set up an Etsy website and Instagram page.

I started to sell handmade Swarovski Pearl and Crystal bracelets. With profits from each one going to various foundations assisting in brain cancer research, advocacy and awareness. The interest I have received has been incredible and I have now raised $3000.
