For strength and inspiration this year, consider prayer and charity. The Prayer for Protection wristband was thoughtfully designed by friends of Robin Roberts, ABC Good Morning America anchor, after she received her diagnosis of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), a blood disorder also known as pre-leukemia.

The bright multi-colored bracelet carries Roberts’ initials (RRR) and the words “Light, Love, Power, Presence,” representing the Prayer for Protection that Roberts’ mother taught her years ago. Beautiful nouns to live by!

Readers can purchase packs of five wristbands for $5 at ShopBeTheMatch.org. One hundred percent of the net proceeds from each purchase supports Be The Match, the global leader in providing bone marrow and umbilical cord blood transplants to patients with leukemia, lymphoma and other serious diseases.
