The Story Behind The CKD Bangle Bracelet™ - G Series. (this product is no longer available)

The  CKD Bangle Bracelet™ - G Series is a custom made silicone design, crafted  emulate the first generation of handmade Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) bracelets. The unique, colorful bracelet was designed as a teaching aid to help educate the community about chronic kidney disease, its growing impact on society and the need for more living donors.  The initial design (no longer available) was hand made for Glenda V. Roberts by her husband, Cal Sturdivant and is no longer available or manufactured.  The original bracelet was designed to demonstrate his devotion and love as her life support coach and care giver. The bracelet can be worn by anyone, including patients, nurses, supporters, donors and loved ones to demonstrate their support for individuals with Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Profits are used to support the OUI Works Living Donor Assistance program, which is dedicated to educating the community and providing assistance to living donors.
The CKD Bangle Bracelets are apart of the OUIWorks "Start the Conversation" educational program to raise awareness about chronic kidney disease (CKD), encourage people to talk about CKD with their family and friends, and to raise money to support transplant recipients and the living donors. All Hope Expandable Series Bracelets have a custom design, no two exactly the same. Help OUI Works support organ donation and the prevention of chronic kidney disease by spreading the word today. Give someone you know a CKD Bangle Bracelet.
 
Design Significance: Green is the Kidney Awareness color. It's also one of the four colors that signifies the strength of Peritoneal Dialysis medication. Transplant patients take medications four times per day. The color mixture is a reminder to take medications and that transplant, like dialysis, is a treatment, not a cure for CKD. Finally, green is the color for the Universal Recycling Symbol. Appropriately, kidney transplant symbolies the recycle of life. That's why the Hope Series Expandable Bracelets is a Trade Mark™. of TEAM HOPE.
The Hope Expandable (silicone) Series is currently available in size 5, which is 2.5 inches in diameter. (This is the standard bracelet size). Since it is expandable, one size fits all.  No two are exactly the same.
