We were inspired to raise awareness for ovarian cancer when we learned that one of our coworkers lost one of his dear friends to the disease. In her honor, he started a non-profit organization which donates funds to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF). Wanting the awareness for ovarian cancer to expand to a national level, he introduced everyone here at Alex and Ani to OCRF for a potential relationship.
We were delighted to move forward with this partnership and have the opportunity to support the many women affected by this disease and help fund research for a cure. After learning more about the organization, we aimed to create a design that represented perseverance, regeneration and healing. Thus, the Strength in Full Bloom Set was created, which combines Water Lily, French Royalty and a Teal Color Beaded.
This set will be available in stores and on www.alexandani.com tomorrow, September 19th. 20% of all sales from the bangle will benefit Ovarian Cancer Research Fund to fuel scientific research that leads to more effective identification, treatment and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.
