There will also be a bezel set genuine red ruby in honor of Bella Rodriguez-Torres and the Live like Bella Foundation. Turley Jewelers pray that this in some small way honors the memory of Briana Vega, by raising money and awareness, to bring about a cure for Leukemia.
Briana Vega was a 12-year-old student at Westminster Christian School in Palmetto Bay who lost her battle to acute myeloid leukemia in February, two years after being diagnosed with the cancer. Only one and a half years after being in remission, she developed a secondary type of cancer, which turned out to be an aggressive type of leukemia that required a bone marrow transplant and eventually took her life.
Now, in memory of Briana, her school has teamed up with the Live like Bella Foundation to create a fishing tournament to raise funds for the foundation and will be used exclusively for research in this form of leukemia.
