Today we are launching Band Together! Starting today, we will choose one week and one organization to receive 10% of ALL purchases made on our website! This week, we are excited to ‘Band Together’ for the Rachel Lynn Henley Foundation.
Rachel Henley's mom shared with us her inspiring and courageous story:
"In September of 2007, Rachel Lynn Henley was a freshman in high school, thriving in her new school as a great student and a strong and talented athlete. An avid soccer player, she decided to spread her wings and try out for the cheerleading team too. After making the team she would often leave one practice for the other, seemingly changing her persona on the short car ride between the soccer field and the cheer gym - from fierce to vivacious, in the blink of an eye. All was so good in her world. Then in November, at fourteen years old, Rachel's busy, happy life was turned inside-out with a cancer diagnosis. Synovial sarcoma is a rare soft tissue cancer that was found in her shoulder. Seven months of chemotherapy, radiation and surgeries followed before she was found to be cancer free in the summer of 2008.
In Rachel's honor, we ask that if you see any ladybugs, please take a moment to think of Rachel and honor her by remembering to live your best life and follow your dreams. You can also use it as a reminder to pass that feeling on to others with a smile, and the sharing of love and encouragement.
