David Yurman Creates Pendant For Pancreatic Cancer

6 Aug

Support the Fight against Pancreatic Cancer

In partnership with the Lustgarten Foundation and London Jewelers, David Yurman has created a signature pendant to support the fight against pancreatic cancer.

The sterling silver and amethyst pendant includes David Yurman’s signature cable detail on a 16″ box chain and retails for $295. The design is also available in 18k gold which retails for $1,700.

The Lustgarten Foundation is the largest private foundation in the U.S. working solely on pancreatic cancer research. The foundation works to advance scientific and clinical research related to the diagnosis, treatment, cure, and prevention of pancreatic cancer. Net proceeds from the sale of the pendant will go to the foundation’s efforts to fight the disease.

The pendant will be available in the fall 2010 at all London Jewelers locations (or call London Jewelers at 1-877-601-9924).

About Pancreatic Cancer

There are many challenges associated with a diagnosis of pancreatic cancer. A very close relative of mine was recently diagnosed, and it’s been an emotional roller coaster learning about the disease and becoming part of her support team.

If the pendant is a bit pricey for you, please consider donating to the Lustgarten Foundation, which ensures that 100% of every donation goes directly to pancreatic cancer research.

If you prefer to donate to a Canadian organization, the National Pancreatic Cancer Canada Foundation supports early detection, effective treatments, and ultimately, finding a cure.  This is the organization I donate to on behalf of my mother, who passed away due to Pancreatic Cancer in 2011.
