Announcing Our 2017 Nashelle Warrior Recipients
January 30, 2017
Each year, Nashelle Jewelry selects two recipients for the Nashelle Warrior Campaign. Nashelle Warriors are inspirational individuals from the Bend, Oregon community who are currently facing extenuating medical challenges. The campaign is designed to raise money to help support the recipient’s medical expenses. The recipients and their families collaborate with Heather Nashelle and her team to design a piece of jewelry that is both meaningful to them and representative of their journey. Once the design has come to life, it is sold for the following year both online and in stores with 100% of the net proceeds contributing to the family’s ongoing medical expenses.
Nashelle is proud to announce our 2017 Nashelle Warrior campaign recipients: Baby, Hudson Boeddeker and the Pratt family.
Lissencephaly - Miller-Dieker Syndrome
Baby Hudson was born with a rare terminal illness called Lissencephaly - Miller-Dieker Syndrome. This condition means “smooth brain” and is only found in 11.7 per million births in the US. Hudson’s parents exemplify the phrase “Head Up Heart Forward” as they work to provide the best quality of life that they can for him. 100% of the net proceeds from the necklace and men’s cuff bracelet go to support Hudson’s medical bills.
Danielle Pratt has suffered from debilitating symptoms related to Lyme Disease since her early teens. Her husband and three children are negativeley affected by this disease as well. The phrase, “Live It Out” is their family motto or creed so to speak. They have a mural of the motto along with antlers painted above the front door to their home. 100% of the net proceeds from the necklace and men’s cuff bracelet go to support the Pratt family’s medical expenses.
Live It Out Necklace - $98
Live It Out Men's Cuff - $48
