Margaret Palmer Jewelry and Be The Match
Maryah, daughter, sister, friend and school-mate, battled a rare form of bone cancer from 2004 to 2010. She embodied grace, strength and perseverance. Life is Fleeting. Maryah’s story came to Margaret through her daughter, who attended Maryah’s high school. From a distance they kept up with the details of Maryah’s battle. When treatment options ran out in 2010, Margaret wondered at the difficulties one faces when losing a child, sister, friend or school-mate. With her heart already set on creating inspiring jewelry to support the fight against cancer, Margaret turned her attention to honoring a brave young woman. Since then Margaret has joined the National Marrow Donor Program, designing a line of jewelry that represents the awareness project that is so vital to the Foundation’s efforts. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the “Be the Match” jewelry line benefits people with life-threatening blood cancers like leukemia and lymphoma or other diseases. Be The Match® connects patients with their donor match for a life-saving marrow or umbilical cord blood transplant.
