Introducing the New Nancye Belle Signature Scarf
Read about the launch of our new Nancye Belle Signature Scarf in the Voice Tribune. After years of people asking if they can purchase a Hope Scarf we can now say, “yes!” This one of a kind scarf is for sale online and at all Nanz & Kraft locations. Each purchase sends another scarf to someone facing cancer.
Nancye Belle Catlett was my sweet mom. She found out in 1995 that she had breast cancer. She had a mastectomy & went through chemo treatments. She didn’t let it stop her from living–she had 2 granddaughters turning a year old that same year. Four more grandchildren were born in the next seven years. She was a very loved mom & nana. My mom’s cancer came back in 2000. She underwent surgery to remove a tumor in her shoulder and radiation treatments. Still she continued to live life to the fullest and fight the battle. She never dwelt on the fact that she had cancer. She cared for my dad who passed away in 2002. Just 8 months later we learned that Mom’s cancer was back for a third time. She passed away 5 months later after just turning 60 years old. I think of her daily & will forever miss her. When I became a grandmother in 2014–I asked my daughter what my grandson should call me. She said “Nana–of course.” It warms my heart every time my soon to be 3-year old grandson calls me Nana.
My cousin, Nancye, named after her Aunt Nannie, is a volunteer for Hope Scarves. She is one of the ones behind the Nancye Belle Signature Scarves. I love her and Hope Scarves for honoring my mom in such a beautiful way! 💗 Mom lost her battle to cancer on May 10, 2003 (Mother’s Day weekend). It will be 14 years next week. What a wonderful way to remember her this year! 💗
Your moms love will go far and wide with thousands of Nancye Belle scarves set to span the world and share hope and encouragement. Thank you for sharing about you mom. We are honored to have our first scarf be in her memory. peace and hope, lara
