Dogeared is so touched to have been a part of the third annual 46 Mommas: Shave for the Brave event raising funds for pediatric cancer research. This group of incredibly inspiring women and their families represent the reality that on average 46 families each weekday receive the news that their child has cancer. The 46 Mommas team is on a mission to raise awareness and funds for life-saving childhood cancer research. With the success of their most recent event, the team has surpassed their million dollar goal and have raised over $215,000 in 2013!

Meet honorary momma, Crystal. She shaved in honor of her brother, Cole, who passed away from a brain tumor. She is 18 and off to college in the fall. Dogeared was more than honored to give Sparkle Heart Necklaces to these brave women, helping bring out the beauty of their new look. We are so inspired by their courage and their goal to find a cure for pediatric cancer.

Dogeared was thrilled to take part in the 3rd annual 46 Mommas Shave for the Brave event in Hollywood! These brave mommas (and other family members) gathered to shave their heads to raise money, build awareness and be advocates for children who have battled cancer.

The 46 Mommas represent all mothers who make the cancer journey with their child. Mommas traveled to Los Angeles from all around the world for this important event.

To help them tell the story of their journey, Dogeared offered each momma the opportunity to build a custom CREATE necklace. They created beautiful and heartfelt pieces as they visited and shared stories with Team Dogeared. We are truly touched by each and every one of them!
