In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, kicking off today, celeb mom-to-be Christina Applegate has helped design a beautiful necklace to raise money for her Right Action for Women foundation.
Christina Applegate herself is a breast cancer survivor, undergoing a double mastectomy last year, even though cancer was only detected in one of her breasts. Her mother is also a breast cancer survivor.
Applegate, along with jewelry designer Alex Woo, worked together to design the pendant necklace called “Tree of Life.”
The website describes the jewelry piece for Breast Cancer Awareness Month: “the pendant with an encircled tree represents harmony, hope and renewal. Each of the seven leaves remind us to live everyday of the week to the fullest. The feminine curves of the tree and branches signify the delicate handmade ribbon roses Christina made for her loved ones while battling breast cancer. This pendant is an everyday reminder of the most important things in life, to stay vigilant about breast cancer awareness and steps to early detection.”
Christina Applegate commented, “I am so grateful to Alex for creating such a beautiful piece to benefit Right Action for Women. Proceeds from the necklace will help women at high risk for breast cancer get the screenings and testing they need to beat this disease.”
You can buy the Breast Cancer Awareness Tree of Life necklace at the Alex Woo website. The necklace is absolutely beautiful – I only wish it was more affordable for more people.
