Staten Island, NY (PRWEB) September 14, 2012
In recognition of National September Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, PicturesOnGold.com has created a new collection of “Childhood Cancer Awareness Jewelry.” The concept for the creation of the jewelry is based on PicturesOnGold partnering with the Mystic Force Foundation, a nonprofit based in North Miami, Florida. Its mission is to raise awareness of Childhood Cancer, and raise desperately needed funds for Cancer research for aggressive childhood cancers. Their goal is to find a cure for all the children afflicted with this very painful and aggressive disease.
Childhood Cancer is the # 1 cause of death in children. More than asthma, cystic fibrosis, diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. Approximately 13,500 children are diagnosed with cancer each year. Each year approximately 3,000 children die from cancer.
The Foundation was founded by Dr. Steven & Silvia Vanni in honor of their son, Salvatore Antonio, who at the age of 4 was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neurblastoma Cancer, and passed away on March 19th of 2011 at 7 years of age.
The partnership between the Mystic Foundation and PicturesOnGold.com was formed by Mrs. Vanni being a regular customer of PicturesOnGold.com’s Photo Engraved Jewelry in remembrance of her son.
“For the past several years Silvia Dominguez Vanni, Co-Founder, Executive Director of the Mystic Force Foundation requested many Laser Engraved Picture Pendants, and Guardian Angel Medals for her son, Salvatore, while he was undergoing extensive treatment at various hospitals throughout the country. It was so heartbreaking to see the photos of the child. After his passing, Mrs. Vanni reached out, asking for any help PicturesOnGold could provide to the Mystic Force Foundation. I decided to make a philanthropic commitment to help the Foundation in their search to find a cure of childhood cancer by designing a new collection of “Childhood Cancer Awareness Jewelry,” said CEO- of PicturesOnGold.com Daniel Schifter.
Gold is the color for Childhood Cancer Awareness! It will appear on every piece of the newly designed collection which includes: a “Salvatore” Medium Heart- Childhood Laser Engraved Photo Cancer Awareness Pendant which can be customized with your own photo and a message engraved on the reverse side. 25% of the Sterling Silver Heart Pendant purchases and 15% of the 10 k Gold or 14 k Gold Heart Pendant will be donated to the Mystic Force Foundation to help fight Childhood Cancer.
In addition, there are three types of One Size Fits All Childhood Cancer Macramé Bracelets including the Sterling Silver,"I Support The Cure,” and “Support The Cure" priced at $99.95. 25% of the Sterling Silver Bracelet purchase prices will be donated to the Mystic Force Foundation to help fight Childhood Cancer. The third bracelet, the "Imagine a World Without Cancer" starts at $109.95. 25% of the Gold Filled Bracelet and 15% of the 10k or 14k Gold Bracelet purchase prices will be donated.
Mr. Schifter stated, “We also plan to have celebrities wearing the jewelry to help promote the new collection.”
The jewelry can be purchased directly from our website at Childhood Cancer Awareness Jewelry, and personalized/engraved for your loved ones. The Promo Code, Mystic can be used at checkout for Free Shipping.
Mr. Schifter also said, “This is a fulfillment a life- long desire I’ve had to help others in need as part of my business plan. I hope it is a successful and fruitful relationship. These Childhood Cancer victims need our help. Keep the memory of “Salvatore,” alive, and all the children who are afflicted or passed through your generous donations. Please contribute to this cause.”
Mrs. Vanni stated, “I am so excited PicturesOnGold.com has partnered with the Mystic Force Foundation. Today, we will auction several pieces of their new collection at our Mix & Mingle & Mangia fund-raiser in North Miami, Florida with the Mayor, and First Lady to raise money for childhood cancer research.
Mystic Force Foundation has funded research to The University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Center for Cell & Gene Therapy at Texas Children’s Hospital, the SickKids Foundation, and the Maris Research Laboratory and Research Program at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. 100% of the money is used for research.
