Roswell Strong necklace in collaboration with Tony Walker & Co

Buffalo, NY — Just in time for the holiday season, Roswell Park Cancer Institute, in collaboration with Tony Walker & Co, has released a limited-edition necklace that carries powerful affirmations close to the heart of those facing, or who have faced, a cancer diagnosis. The “Roswell Strong” necklace features a four-sided bar pendant inscribed with meaningful messages to inspire and empower: Cancer Warrior, Determined, Brave and Blessed.

The necklace comes in two styles, rose gold (29-inch chain with 3-inch extension) and silver (26-inch chain).

“It’s a statement necklace; not in size, but in meaning,” said Kathy Graim, Roswell Park patient and cancer survivor. “It takes courage, determination and bravery to battle through our treatments, and every new day we have is a gift and a blessing. This necklace represents what it means to be a survivor.”

Produced by Modern Luxuri, one of Tony Walker’s exclusive brands, the necklace retails for $50 and is only available online. Fifty percent of the purchase price from each necklace will benefit cancer research and compassionate quality-of-life programs at Roswell Park.
