The Courage bracelet was designed out of the desire to create a jewelry piece whose entire proceeds could be donated to a cause that I care about, the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation. Through amazing community support and donations, the Courage bracelet has been designed so that every component is donated, therefore passing on the entire bracelet price to support cancer care and research in the Ottawa region.


The Cause

The Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation is the only local organization dedicated to raising funds for cancer care exclusively in our region. 

With support from the community, the Cancer Foundation has invested millions of dollars in the expansion of regional cancer services working to ensure that local residents have the best care close to home; shorter wait times for diagnosis and treatment; access to research and new therapies and overall improved quality of life – which includes the new Maplesoft Centre – Canada’s first centre for cancer survivorship.
