It’s a busy month. My private practice business (Ignite, LLC) has partnered with another local company, Chacha’s Boutique to make these handmade copper bracelets to raise money for breast cancer. Next week we will be producing a video on my YouTube channel talking about this specific fundraiser as well as how to cope with a new diagnosis for those with breast cancer and their loved ones. Folks can purchase either bracelet on Etsy for $15 and there are two other options for personalization as well. Proceeds will go to OHSU’s Knight Cancer Institute. Pre-order your’s now and they will start shipping out October 1st in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
