I was about to have a Tree of Life pendant custom made, but through my search for the perfect design, I found this website and it was love at first sight. It was exactly what me and my father had pictured; Classic, refined, yet powerful in its meaning. Even better, I saw that this charitable design was created to raise breast cancer awareness. What makes this pendant really special to me is that it will be my “lucky necklace” through my father’s battle against pancreatic cancer. Though nobody has ever survived this diagnosis, I decided to help him live his life to the fullest for as long as possible. We learned on October 30, 2011 that he had a non-operable, locally advanced, pancreatic cancer. His survival rate was a year with the hardest chemotherapy available. Though some oncologists didn’t want to give him the hardest treatment as they thought he wasn’t strong enough, he’s getting just that to this very day and proving himself against the odds. This pendant represents exactly what my Dad is, and what I need to keep going: Life, strength, and hope.
