Surely you know someone who has, or had, cancer. Whether it was a friend, family member, co-worker, or even yourself, now days everyone knows someone who has suffered from a form of cancer. And, with all the media attention and cancer awareness groups out there, no doubt that you have seen the pins, t-shirts, stuffed animals, cards, jewelry, and other gifts that all support cancer and cancer awareness.
One of the fastest growing trends in cancer awareness gifts is cancer awareness jewelry. This jewelry started just as small rubber wristbands and has moved from there into beautiful works of art that are created to make people aware, and remember those who have lost their battle with the disease. Cancer awareness jewelry can be found in gold, silver, platinum, and other precious metals.
These pieces of jewelry can be found, or ordered, in any style and with any stone that you would like to make it a unique work of art that will help you to remember that special person or your personal struggle. Bracelets are the most common, with a large centerpiece that is usually engraved with names and dates. But, necklaces, rings, and earrings can all be personalized as well to ensure that you let everyone know. If you prefer a more casual approach to cancer awareness jewelry, there is always the sports wristbands and the thin, rubber wristbands that come in a wide variety of colors and messages.
These can be personalized as well, so no matter where you are, working out or at work, you will always have your reminder to help you talk to people about cancer and help to spread the word for early detection, especially with breast and colon cancer. Many of the companies who personalize cancer awareness jewelry also do cancer awareness gift baskets. So, if you are ordering a piece of jewelry for a friend, family member, or co-worker, you can have it put in a cancer awareness gift basket with other goodies, like stuffed animals, ribbons, candy, chocolates, perfumes, bath and body creations, and many, many other gifts, all that can help to promote cancer awareness. These make great gifts for survivors and those who have just been diagnosed with cancer, since it lets them know that not only are you thinking about them, but you are also trying to help with the research for the treatments and cure.
Most of the proceeds from the jewelry and the gift baskets will go toward cancer research to help find better treatments and, eventually, a cure.
