Volunteers from the Black Canyon Car Club, led by Frank Kinion and his late wife Jan, began making multicolored colored beaded bracelets in November 2005. The bracelets sold for $20 to help raise money initially for the construction of the San Juan Cancer Center.
Each bracelet has multi-colored beads and each color of bead designates a different type of cancer. They never envisioned that the bracelets would be such a huge hit! They have sold 3,500 bracelets and donated more than $70,000 to the San Juan Cancer Center so far!
A celebration luncheon was held at the San Juan Cancer Center in Frank's honor on Sept. 18.
If you would like to purchase a bracelet for $20, stop by the San Juan Cancer Center or call Frank Kinion at 596-2034. All proceeds continue to support patient care at the cancer center.blog comments powered by Disqus
