Tree of Life Breastmilk Jewelry
Holly’s journey with Dell Children’s began when her daughter, Adeline, was diagnosed with bilateral optic nerve gliomas in April of 2020. Spending a lot of time in the Chemo Clinic during her 15 month treatment, Adeline always received something special from the Child Life Therapists to make her time more enjoyable. Sometimes it was a teddy bear, sometimes it was coloring books, or a doll or play doh. Adeline loved it every single time! It always put a big smile on her face! In honor of Adeline’s diagnosis anniversary, you are invited to support Holly’s business, Tree of Life Breastmilk Jewelry during the month of April when 100% of proceeds will be donated to Dell Children’s Child Life program.
