The Love for Linda pendant is cast in sterling silver and is approximately the size of a nickel. A chain is not included but can be special ordered. All proceeds from the sale of this pendant (excluding the production cost) are donated. $30 of each sale are to benefit the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network PanCAN (https://www.pancan.org).
Linda was my mom, and she was also an artist. She passed away on December 27, 2020 from a combination of Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer and COVID-19. Her cancer was diagnosed in January 2020.
The chicken imagery on the front of the pendant is taken from my mom’s painting on the back of her work smock. We used this image to make her a support logo "Love for Linda (seen in the product listing pictures)."
The curly haired doodle on the back of the pendant is a drawing from a prayer that I wrote as a child (also seen in my product listing images). The timing of finding the written prayer coincided with a very important scan of my mom's, so I changed the wording to benefit my mom.

Together this pendant is meant to offer comfort for those suffering from Pancreatic Cancer, for their friends and for their family. I also hope the proceeds help scientists and doctors find a cure.
