September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness month
Worthmore Jewelers and Lika Behar joined forces to design these handmade Fuck Cancer necklaces to raise money for Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance.
Worthmore has supported Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance (GOCA) for years and then this past March, one of our own, Joan Wasser was diagnosed with stage 3C ovarian cancer. To show our support for Joan and all the other ovarian cancer warriors, we approached award winning designer Lika Behar to make a necklace for us. There truly are no other words to describe how we and so many others in the world feel about cancer than these two words, “Fuck Cancer”. No matter if you are going through treatment, a loved one, coworker or neighbor, we feel it is important to show support and love. Wearing these necklaces not only shows your strength and support but helps other women that are newly diagnosed with Ovarian Cancer. Worthmore Jewelers is donating one Bag of Hope for GOCA to send out to a women that has been recently diagnosed. The mission of the Georgia Ovarian Cancer Alliance is to increase awareness and educate women and their families as well as the health care community about risks, symptoms, and treatment of ovarian cancer leading to earlier detection.
The bag of hope contains items to help them stay as comfortable as possible while they are undergoing treatment as well as resource information on ovarian cancer.
“Joan says, ‘If we can get one lady to get screened early, then it will make a difference in someone’s life,’
Lika Behar will be making an instore appearance for the unveiling of her first Lika Behar shop in shop and to show her support for our Fuck Cancer Initiative October 14 and 15th in our midtown Atlanta store. If you would like to be invited to our VIP party with Lika the evening of Friday October 14th, please email Geri@worthmorejewelers.com
