Campaigning for a Cure

Her laugh was instantaneous and infectious. Demetra “Didi” Diles possessed an incredible joie de vivre; a pillar of strength, she epitomized courage especially once the diagnosis came. After the trip of a lifetime with her loving family, Didi came back from Greece to find her life was being threatened by a silent killer.

Didi’s diagnosis with pancreatic cancer inspired Accessorize For Awareness. Her and her devoted daughter set forth to spread the word about the deadly illness that cut Didi’s life short. They took matters into their own hands (literally) and fashioned a variety of handmade bracelets with a wide selection of charms. It’s arm candy for a cure!

Raising a family with her husband was Didi’s proudest accomplishment. And, now her dedicated children see to it that Didi’s bountiful generosity lives on. AFA is a lasting tribute to the wonderful woman we owe everything to: Mom.
