Alex and Ani Charity by Design launches the Young and Strong Bangle, which honors the memory of Bridget Slotemaker, a young mother, wife, dear friend, and daughter.

The Young and Strong symbol is a tribute to remarkable women of courage. Wear this bangle for the inspiration to embrace peace, love and healing through the power of positive thinking. A portion of proceeds will be donated to a leading cancer center which provides optimal care, education and support for young women and their loved ones!

Bridget, was a vibrant soul who left an impression on many and inspiration on all.

On launching the Young and Strong Bangle on September 27, 2011 – “Why September 27th?  This is the day when Chloe was released from the hospital three years ago.   Chloe was born weighing 1lb 2oz and was in the NICU for over 3 months.  Chloe was born three-months premature and 7 weeks after Bridget was diagnosed with cancer.  Bridget passed away 7 weeks after Chloe was born.  Chloe was released from the hospital on September 27 2008 after her mom had passed and only got to see Bridget twice with her premature eyes.”  – Steve Slotemaker, Bridget’s husband and father to Bridget’s daughters, Grace Slotemaker and Chloe Slotemaker
