Rethinking lung cancer, one pearl at a time.
The Pearl Project was founded to offer the world a simple and positive way to promote lung cancer awareness - think pearls! Did you know lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in women? Proceeds from jewelry sales are donated The Pearl Project's charity partner The American Lung Association to advance their progress in lung health and lung cancer research, awareness and education.
Our goal is to create a new awareness movement for a world where no one is blamed for having cancer. Like any movement, the first step is opening up the conversation. Reversing the stigma of lung cancer is the key to progress in research and a cure. The statistics are widely misunderstood and lung cancer can affect anyone. And everyone with cancer deserves to feel supported, empowered, and hopeful.
Founder Kristina Corrales Raso designed the Pearl Project jewelry line in memory of her mother to create a recognizable symbol for lung cancer awareness. Wear your pearls with pride in supporting The Pearl Project and join the movement to help the world rethink lung cancer.
Why pearls? Lung cancer awareness has many colors. One is clear because it's an invisible disease. Another color is pearl. Pearls represent wisdom and strength. Traditionally worn across the chest, they are an iconic symbol to support a disease that deserves a voice and progress in the cancer community.
Thank you for thinking pearls for lung cancer awareness!
Empower. Inspire. It's Time.
