The Hope Bracelet is the newest addition to Sisco + Berluti's charity collection. All of the profits from the sale of this bracelet will benefit The Tucker Gosnell Center for Gastrointestinal Cancers at Massachusetts Hospital, where Lisa Sisco is currently being treated for cholangiocarcinoma.
Each year, more than 8,000 people are diagnosed with biliary cancer, and the actual number of cases is likely higher because these cancers can be difficult to diagnose, and some are likely misclassified as other types of cancer. Despite the clear need to better understand how to diagnose and treat this disease, it has been and continues to be underfunded and understudied. However, over the past five years The Tucker Gosnell Center has put together one of the most productive multidisciplinary teams in the country to study biliary cancer. They are already seeing the benefits with several new therapies currently in clinical trials that are showing meaningful impact on patient outcomes.
The Hope Bracelet is a soft green shade of smooth Burma Jade with a rustic brass accent. Jade has been revered for thousands of years for its healing properties and its ability to bring about overall well-being, emotional healing, good luck, and good fortune.
