Rock the Ribbon

2010

A special Thank You goes to tattoo artist Jime Litwalk, Hart and 
Huntington Las Vegas and The Hard Rock Hotel for creating their own charity event: Rock the Ribbon. Held on October 29th, Rock the Ribbon offered the public an opportunity to have the F Cancer design tattooed free of charge. The event was inspired by our F Cancer friend and cancer survivor Tony di Giovanni who had the F Cancer artwork turned into beautiful body art on his 40th birthday (add link to video). Donations were accepted and proceeds passed onto Susan G. Komer for the Cure and F Cancer Embrace Life.

The cheap plastic yellow LiveStrong bracelets by the Lance Armstrong Foundation have raised millions for the cause, but really, who is going to wear that on a daily basis, if at all? Of course the dollar cost is no biggie and a worthwhile, inexpensive purchase, but isn’t it better to have a piece of jewelry that you can proudly wear? Vancouver jewelry designer and cancer survivor Susan Fiedler of Soul Flower has been turning heads with her elegant sterling silver bracelet engraved with the words we all feel — “Fuck Cancer.”

INSPIRE HEALTH ANNUAL REPORT

2010

I have been a jewelry designer and world traveler for most of my adult life. I’m accustomed to working hard and relying on myself: I’ve worked on a fishing boat, tended bar, lived in Bali and San Francisco, and taught myself to snowboard and ski. But in 2006, I found myself really struggling. I was seriously exhausted, spending more and more time in bed. I thought it was burnout. It never crossed my mind I had cancer. I’ve always been such a healthy, active person. And I was only 38!

RENEWAL - MAY 19 2009

2009

Inscribed on an elegantly simple silver bangle, and resembling an EEG lifeline, is the defiantly positive message: F*ck Cancer. The work of Vancouver-based Susan Fiedler, who knows firsthand what it takes to face this disease, this charmed bracelet was an expression of her own experience, but she found many cancer survivors using the same motto, and was delighted to find it expressive of a shared attitude.

RACHEL PACHEL WAS MY NAME - MARCH 08 2009

Imagine for me please……..you are a young, dynamic, world travelling, independent, creative jewellery designer. Now, try to also imagine, that you have just been diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, told that you are basically incurable.

What would you do?

Would you lay down and die? Or would you fight?

Would you follow every order your doctor gave you unquestioningly, or would you demand second opinions and seek alternative healing options?

So, in the meantime, I’ll try to enjoy each day as much as I can - and take the advice that’s inscribe on a gift from my brother Moses, the founder of this magazine. It’s a handsome silver bracelet, and he wears one exactly like it in solidarity. The engraving looks like the squiggles on a medical monitor. But if you look closely, you can read the legend: F**k Cancer!

REBELLION DESIGN THERAPY - FEBRUARY 10 2009

2009

Jewellery designer Susan Fiedler gets right to the point with this eye-catching charm. As the review puts it, nothing against pink ribbons, but tough causes call for tough language. "The F*Cancer bracelet is delicate but strong, subtle but forthright. Wearing one brings plain speech and a little charm-bracelet magic into a battle that’s worth our lives."
