Additional beLIeVE™ Disk/Sinker
To believe is powerful. To live is essential.™
The inspiration for these necklaces came from Zach Briggs and the other too many people fighting cancer. Zach was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in September 2008; he was only 15 months old at the time. He endured countless needle pokes, 24-hour chemo drips, rounds of steroids and more, but through it all he smiled, laughed and lived.
When you’re fighting cancer you’ll find a lot of things that include the word “hope.” There is value in “hope”, but for Zach’s mom the word “believe” is the one that resonated. Moved by another child’s encouragement to his own family to “live” after his own battle with cancer was lost, the connection between the two words came to her during a doodling session with Zach. There in the middle of the word “believe” were the letters “L,I,V,E” – two vital reminders in one word.
Zach completed his treatment in February 2012, but he will never stop fighting and he lives life with pure joy. A portion of the proceeds from every necklace sold benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society through Team In Training (TNT) and Light The Night Walk (LTN).
Although beLIeVE originated from a child’s fight against cancer, it is an important reminder to all of us, to always believe in something and to live every moment.
