The holidays were approaching, and things were weighing heavily on the members of the Cancer Support Community’s Young Adult support group. “The holidays, the reality of having cancer, the statistics, surgeries, treatments – every member was deeply affected,” says Tricia Lethcoe, LMFT, a licensed psychotherapist who facilitates the group.

Madison is quoted: “As a patient, it is easy to get caught up in the shuffle of appointments, tests, and treatments,” says Madison, another group member. “That’s why the Origami Owl jewelry donation was so special. We chose charms that each represented something to us. The necklaces are so beautiful because they are a tangible reminder of who we are outside of cancer. The donors’ gift is bigger than a necklace. For me, it is a powerful affirmation of who I am, and I will be forever grateful for their generosity.”
Thanks to the Cancer Support Community and volunteers there!
