In June 2019, our amazing, vibrant 32-year old daughter Erin was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and we wanted to help raise awareness by creating a meaningful piece of jewelry.
A spinning arrow through diamonds represents courage as one moves forward through a challenging journey. When the arrow is turned on the ring, 'KOA' is revealed. KOA is the Hawaiian word for 'the strong, brave and fearless' but has been simplified to mean 'warrior'.
About 155 Americans are diagnosed with pancreatic cancer every single day and the disease kills more people than breast cancer. We must find a cure.
So, as our beautiful KOA journeys through this most challenging battle, we hope to make an impact by donating all profits* from the sale of this ring to pancan.org. Together, let's wage hope.
With Love and Gratitude, Nan
