What People Say About Us

Thank you so much for your love, care, support & encouragement during the toughest time of my life. With your strength stone, I knew the path I walked would never be alone & would be smoother than I’d thought.”

My amazing best friend Emily was doing some outside research on things to help me get through my scary cancer diagnosis of triple negative breast cancer at just 34 years young. She stumbled across Sharashet and found the Glass Ribbon Project. She had reached out to them letting them know what I was going through and immediately they made some pink and yellow stones (soulful sunflower is my ‘nickname’) and these stones just brought me so much strength and hope knowing that I’m not alone. I also got some extra stones to share in my free cancer giveaway boxes! I want to make sure I spread these stones of strength and hope to other people going through this journey!  We also can’t wait to make our own stones with my family as a fun activity together, so we can share the strength and hope we as a family have created while I go through this journey of mine
