Brace Yourself

May was Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month and a fellow CF Wife came across this fantastic page on Facebook. A lovely military wife makes inspiring, heart warming and bracelets to honor loved ones. She also makes watches, lanyards, camera straps and pet items with virtually any saying, color combinations and variety of charms too. We were inspired by a purple bracelet with a mini dog tag saying “I love someone with Cystic Fibrosis”.

I know purple is the key color for CF, however I’m more of a black and green person so I opted for something different. Megan came up with the saying “Cystic Fibrosis may have his cells but I have his heart” with the purple awareness ribbon. Then for an everyday bracelet, I wanted something in a green paracord because I saw a 4 leaf clover that looks just like my tattoo. Michael is truly my lucky charm so it worked out really well, plus she was able to put our anniversary on the other side. I’m actually typing this with it on my right wrist and it brings a smile to my face.

A big thank you to Megan for helping us raise awareness in the month of May and forever more to the CF Wives. Awareness is truly a cure for ignorance so this is a great avenue. Now to think of what to get next… I think my auntie needs a bracelet to honor my uncle’s passing from ALS! Please visit Megan’s site and see for yourself.


Breathe easy my friends!

  1. Hey! my name is aley durant fisher. My fiance recently passed away from cf, and I just saw this bracelet. WHERE CAN I GET ONE!?

    • Hi Aley! I’m so terribly sorry for your loss but glad you found my blog. The bracelets can be found on Facebook by searching for “under_construction survival bracelets.” She will customize to your desire including color, size, charms and stamping on the underside of the metal. Also, search for “CF Wives” if you’d love a support group with ladies who know what it means to be with a CF’er, knowing that there are a few in your exact situation.
