MJ's Hope and Strength Bracelets

Regular price $ 25.00 Sale

MJ's story is one of Hope and Strength and in honor of these amazing attributes Moxie Malas has teamed up with the MJ's Mighty Marchers March for Dimes team to raise money for this great cause. The profits made from every bracelet are going to be donated directly to MJ's Mighty Marchers to raise money to:

  • Help more moms have healthy pregnancies
  • Support families in the Newborn Intensive Care Unit (NICU)
  • Fund research to fight birth defects and premature birth

Because both hope and strength are such a huge part of the Irrthum family journey I decided to create two separate bracelets. 

HOPE - is designed to bring about a soothing and calming energy. 
STRENGTH - is designed to support the amount of strength and courage it takes to endure a journey such as theirs.

Michael's Story

This is Michael (MJ). Michael was born in September 2015 at 26 weeks. He weighed 1lb 13oz and was a little longer than a ruler at 12 3/4"...he could literally fit in the palm of your hand. Michael spent the first 84 days of his life in the NICU at St. Paul Children's. Our family knew very little about premature babies, or micro-preemies such as MJ. It was a very frightening time for our family, navigating the unknown nicu road, referred to as the "nicu rollercoaster"...one step forward 2...sometimes 3, 4, or 5 steps back.

MJ showed us just how determined he was to make it in this world. Never underestimate the power of a tiny babe that weighs less than 7 sticks of butter. MJ proved every doctor wrong and powered through every milestone set before him. MJ came home in December 2015 and has been thriving and growing into a sweet, funny, fiesty little boy.

Our family has teamed up with March of Dimes in the March for Babies to help raise money for a cause that has become very near and dear to our hearts. We walk and raise money in the hope that someday no baby will have to endure the struggles that mj encountered from being born too soon.

By sharing our story, our struggles and our victories, our hope is to be able to give strength to others who may be navigating this sometimes dark, uncertain, but miraculously beautiful life journey.
