Cancer is awful. There isn’t a person in this country that has not been affected by cancer in some way—a sister, a father, a friend, a coworker, children—everyone has been touched by this terrible disease. And as cancer has yet to be fully understood, it can be absolutely terrifying.
While each of us has a desire to help in whatever way we can, not everyone gets the chance to really take a step out and do those things. That’s one thing we love about our founder, Heather Straw. From the very beginning, she’s had a heart to give back from what this company makes—and a lot of the time, that ends up being to the families that have to struggle with cancer.
We want to find a cure, we want to support families, and we want to help in whatever way we can to pay it forward to the people struggling with cancer right now. That’s why we created a program around supporting the men, women and children that have to deal with one of the worst diseases plaguing our country.
How Nashelle is Involved
Here at Nashelle, we’ve created a series of products that give back to the people that have to deal with cancer every day, in all its forms. These products are for the people who have a daughter that deals with Leukemia, a grandmother that died of Breast Cancer, or the husband who has spent years working through Prostate Cancer.
These products remind us of a disease that will not easily be eradicated, and the people that we have lost to it. We wear our EFF CANCER necklaces with pride, because we know that we should never forget what cancer can do to a family.
Our Cancer Warriors
Our Cancer Warrior program is close to our hearts, and a huge part of what Nashelle does. Every year, we choose two lovely women from our community to be our Cancer Warriors. These ladies are people with children, jobs and lives that have been affected by cancer in one way or another. They’re some of the most beautiful people we know, and we are thankful for them every day.
We ask these women to give us a word or a phrase that embodies what they’ve had to deal with in their fight against cancer—and then we put it on a necklace. We then sell this necklace online through our site, and at events and fundraisers in our community, and give 100% of the net proceeds back to the family, to cover the medical bills that pile up during chemotherapy, radiation, and the many hospital visits that a cancer patient has to deal with.
It’s our small way of giving back to the beautiful people who certainly don’t deserve this life that was thrust upon them.
This all began several years ago, with our first Cancer Warrior. Jen has a truly beautiful story, and we want to respect her family and her legacy by not again pushing her story back into the spotlight. We loved this woman through and through, and miss her every day.
This year, our two Cancer Warriors are Stephanie O’Brien and Katie Tuma. Both of these women inspire us immensely, and we are so blessed to know them. The words they chose for their necklaces are "Eff Cancer" and "Relentless."
- Get more information on Stephanie O’Brien and her fight with Breast Cancer.
- Learn more about Katie Tuma and her fight with Thyroid Cancer.
Again, we can’t say enough how much we despise this disease, and we can’t wait for the day that we can all cure it together.
Join us in the fight against cancer of all kinds, and support amazing organizations like Stand up 2 Cancer!
Thanks to all of you amazing people who are with us in this endeavor, all the survivors who deal with it every day, and the friends and family that we have lost to this disease. We adore you all!
xoxo, the Nashelle team

It's time for our third annual Teddy Bear Drive at Nashelle in the Old Mill District!
Through the month of December, receive 20% off your Nashelle purchase when you bring in a sweet little teddy bear. All of the donations we receive will be given to the KIDS Center here in Central Oregon. Learn more about what they do at www.kidscenter.org!
All teddy bears must be new, with tags still attached! Bring them in during our normal business hours... and then go shopping!
Monday - Saturday from 10am - 8pm || Sunday from 11am - 6pm
Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and Cyber Monday all happen within the span of five days, and after all that, it's important to take a step back and remember what the holidays are really all about - giving back!
That's what Giving Tuesday is for. After you've shopped yourself silly over the weekend, today is the day we look at some of the amazing organizations out there that give back to communities locally and worldwide. These are a few of the deserving organizations that we work with here at Nashelle!
Get the whole story of what we do here at Nashelle on our What We Stand For page.
Feeding America - www.feedingamerica.org
The Feeding America network is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization. The nationwide network of food banks provides more than 3.3 billion meals to virtually every community in the United States through food pantries and meal programs.
Nashelle donates one plate of food for every piece of jewelry sold, through Feeding America and NeighborImpact!
Stand up 2 Cancer - www.standup2cancer.org
Stand Up To Cancer’s (SU2C) mission is to raise funds to accelerate the pace of groundbreaking translational research that can get new therapies to patients quickly and save lives now. SU2C brings together the best and the brightest researchers and mandates collaboration among the cancer community. By galvanizing the entertainment industry, SU2C has set out to generate awareness, educate the public on cancer prevention and help more people diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors.
50% of the net proceeds from our Hope 'Identity' Necklace support Stand up 2 Cancer!
The Farley Project - www.thefarleyproject.org
The Farley Project is a 501c3 non-profit organization dedicated to teaching kids kindness! Too many people are stuck in the mindset that kids pick on kids and that is simply part of growing up. We know better, and are determined to share our experiences and knowledge city by city, school by school, camp by camp, until a real difference is made.
We support the Farley Project through our new line of Kids jewelry! For each piece of new kids collection sold, we give 25% of the net profits to the Farley Project, as part of our Anti-Bullying campaign!
Food for the Hungry - fh.org
Food for the Hungry (FH) is a Christian organization serving the poor globally since 1971. We reflect the love of Christ in short-term emergency relief and long-term work to end world hunger.
Family Access Network - www.familyaccessnetwork.org
FAN advocates are located in all public schools in Deschutes County and serve families living in poverty with children ages 0-18. Advocates work hand in hand with families to connect them to food, shelter, clothing, heating, school supplies, health services, or whatever the need. Advocates are knowledgeable about community resources available, as well as state and federal programs and in constant contact with local providers.
Nashelle donates a portion of all proceeds to this very deserving organization!
Kids Center - www.kidscenter.org
KIDS Center works together with law enforcement, medical providers and social service agencies to create a supportive response to child abuse through a multi-disciplinary team approach. We serve Deschutes, Crook and Jefferson county along with the Warm Springs Reservation at our Bend center.
Every year, Nashelle does a Teddy Bear Drive down in the Old Mill, to bring toys and love to the kids at the Kids Center! We also donate monthly to this amazing Central Oregon organization.
NeighborImpact - www.neighborimpact.org
NeighborImpact is a private not for profit organization which serves all of Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties. We envision a Central Oregon where residents, regardless of their income status, have hope and optimism, and have access to community resources that see them through times of need. NeighborImpact provides a diversity of services that not only meet basic human needs for food and shelter, but also enrich people’s lives by providing access to increased education, skills, and hope for the future.
We donate one plate of food through NeighborImpact and Feeding America for every single piece of jewelry that leaves our warehouse!
Thanks to all of these fantastic organizations, and the communities that support them!
xoxo, the Nashelle team
