My name is Rebecca. I recently received my bracelets from your 7000 Bracelets of Hope program. I suffer from many rare autoimmune diseases, as well as rare genetic diseases, and rare things I was born with.
Since receiving the bracelets, I feel very strong and like I can fight against my diseases and conquer them. I feel that I can set my mind on anything and achieve my hopes, dreams, and goals. Most importantly, I don’t feel alone anymore. I feel that I have a community and family that is supporting me every step of the way, near or far, that is going through the same thing I’m going through.
The personal card I received along with the bracelets made me feel special, like someone cares and is thinking of me. The words that were written gave me the hope, spirit, and the will to strive through these difficult times that I will have to live with for the rest of my life with my health and break through the depression that holds me back at times feeling that a cure will never be found.
Even recently with my health getting worse, I look at these bracelets and know that it will all be okay, I just have to believe.
Thank you for everything.
P.S. Blue is my favorite color 🙂
