The Story of Rosa & Maya

Today, we heard a story from a customer that left tears in our eyes and goosebumps all over. As you know, we have two styles of bracelets called Rosa and Maya. Without giving too much away, keep those bracelets in mind as you read this story about the unexpected paths that crossed between Bravelets and a beautiful family in California…

“My name is Marina and I would like to share a story with you about how Bravelets has affected me. One of my best friends, Maya, told us the news just months ago that her mom is pregnant and we were all so excited to meet Maya’s baby sister! just one week ago I got a call from one of my best friends who was there saying Rosa, Maya’s mom, had gone into labor the night before. She then proceeded to say that the baby is healthy, but something had happened with Rosa. 

Rosa, at the age of 43, had a blood clot move from her leg to her lung suddenly after giving birth to her third daughter. This caused her to stop breathing and lose consciousness. Unfortunately, the doctors couldn’t save her and we lost Rosa exactly one week from today.  
Tonight I was scrolling through my Instagram when an ad came up that read “Rosa bracelet” and I thought, “How weird...” Then it said “Maya Bracelet” and that is when I knew this wasn’t any coincidence.  

I clicked on your site to find out the whole message is to help people during their toughest times. I could not believe my eyes when I saw that of all the names and the people in the world, Maya and Rosa were put together. And then that this ad showed up today. 

I knew immediately I not only had to get one for Maya, but I bought one with overnight shipping in order to bury Rosa with the “Maya Bracelet” on her wrist forever. I wrote you because I want to let you know how much you have affected both me, but also Maya, and the rest of my best friends. I ended up buying several of these bracelets, and I know they will be worn with so much meaning. Thank you so much.”

GOOSEBUMPS. Marina reached out to us to share a story that moved us beyond words about a unexpected crossing of paths between Bravelets and Rosa & Maya. As you may or may not know, Bravelets started during a hard time for our Founder, Stephanie, after her mom was diagnosed with breast cancer. Stephanie wanted to create something that was a reminder to be brave in the face of difficulty, in the face of things she couldn't control, in the face of life's harsh reality.

We named these two special bracelets after strong women we admired, Rosa Parks & Maya Angelou... but now these names have taken on a different meaning. Now, they represent the strong women of today. Rosa, a wonderful mother, whose time may have been cut too short, but her legacy will live on. And Maya, a daughter, who will be navigating many new challenges. We wanted to express to Maya and all her friends and family - we are with you. We are here for you.

Often in life, we look for a purpose. Here at Bravelets we feel we have found ours with the story of Rosa & Maya. We are so honored to be a part of their story. We are sending prayers of strength to all of them. Our hope is that this small piece of jewelry serves as a reminder to be brave and strong.

We are constantly overwhelmed with emotion as we hear stories from each of you about how Bravelets has made an impact on your life and your journey through hardships. You constantly remind us why we do what we do, and why we do it passionately. Bravelets is so thankful for each and every one of your support. We ARE braver together.

A special thank you to Marina for sharing this beautiful story with us and supporting Maya and her family in such a beautiful way. You are a wonderful, special person that definitely made this difficult time easier for Rosa's family.
