I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and this is no exception.

The founder of a jewelry and accessory company is convinced now more than ever of divine intervention. When Emalie Eaton was searching for a name for her new collection, Maya Grace kept cropping up among all of the other names being considered. A quick Google search brought her to the story of Maya Grace, a 3 year old girl that passed away from cancer. "Her story moved me to tears," says Emalie. "I am a firm believer that everything happens for a reason, and this is no exception." The company was named Mya Grace as a tribute to that young girl. It is spelled a bit differently, without the ‘a’. Emalie says it reminds her daily the missing ‘a’ stands for an Angel that is missing from Earth.

Mya Grace donates at least 5% of their gross sales to help fund children’s cancer research. "As the mother of two young children, the thought of one of them having a disease that could go undetected as Maya’s did frightens me immensely," says Emalie, "I had to do something. If we can donate more than 5% we do, but that is my baseline and we just have to make it work without that 5%." In addition to monetary donations, the company has plans for many other projects in and around the community to spread awareness.
