As many of you know, my mother was diagnosed with lung cancer last year. She went through several months of chemo and radiation, and became deathly ill. To the point that we thought she was going to die. It was a scary moment in life. Thank God, she's made a turnaround and the cancer is in remission. Because I know several people who have had to battle cancer, I am appreciative of companies like Sally Jane.
Sally Waite of Boston was diagnosed with Stage 4 colon cancer while 7-months pregnant. Using her love for jewelry and nature, she went on a mission to inspire others. She teamed up with her Aunt Sally to create Sally Jane (www.sallyjane.net). Their signature message- “Bee Courageous, Bee Bold, Bee a Survivor, Just Bee” to coincide with the bee designs. As a cancer survivor Sally knew the line would make a thoughtful gift for others going through a difficult time. The company is even donating back to the cancer research community for each item sold.
All of the jewelry sold at Sally Jane features a bee. It's symbolic of the bee who is endangered and sometimes has to rise up against adversity. I love the whole concept of how this jewelry line is created for women to remind themselves that they are powerful and can be anything.
The Silver Little Bee Necklace I received arrived in a brown rectangle box with the company logo. Inside was the necklace and a small pink jewelry pouch.
