When Olympic figure-skating champion Dorothy Hamill was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007, she took the same approach she did when she took a spill on the ice. She picked herself up, brushed herself off, and kept on moving.
She's now a multi-year survivor, and inspired by her gratitude for the treatment she received and a desire to help the millions of women battling breast cancer worldwide, she created the Love, Help & Hope collection.
Hamill has always been passionate about jewelry and had wanted to try her hand at designing a collection for a long time, so she partnered with Helzberg Diamonds to create "jewelry with a purpose." The Love, Help & Hope collection incorporates the ribbon (the international symbol of breast cancer awareness), hearts to convey love, and fluid lines to echo the grace of gliding on the ice. With the purchase of each piece, Helzberg will donate $5 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure to help in the fight against breast cancer.
In addition to supporting Susan G. Komen, Hamill believes her collection will be a daily reminder of love, hope, and happiness for the women wearing the pieces. It's also a great way to help empower women to be walking advocates for breast cancer awareness and research. To learn more about Hamill's inspiration for the collection, check out the video below.
Helzberg's partnership with Hamill for the Love, Help & Hope collection is one way the company is sharing the love and giving back. As part of its "I am Loved" campaign, Helzberg is featuring stories like Hamill's to inspire others to share their stories of love via YouTube, Twitter (#iamloved), or Facebook.
Helzberg knows that on Valentine's Day, giving a gift of jewelry clearly says "I love you" but this year, they encourage you to consider saying something more with the Love, Help & Hope collection.
