Upon meeting Patrick at his Kissimmee Valley Farmers Market booth, I instantly admired him. Patrick is the mind, hands and heart behind “PJ’s Bracelets & Key Chains”. He donates the money he raises, selling bracelets and key chains he fashions by hand from colored cord and aluminum soda can tabs, for cancer research. He buys the soda can tabs by the pound from Ronald McDonald House – and pays double what they ask.
Patrick is no stranger to cancer; it has touched and continues to touch his family. Because we share that experience, I applaud the fact that Patrick has determined to do something to help others. It was clear from speaking with him that his creations are a labor of love and of healing. While his donations help fund research to heal others, I know his work is helping to heal him, too. If you’re in downtown Kissimmee on a Tuesday evening, be sure to stop by his booth at the Farmers Market and support what he’s doing.
God bless you, Patrick. It was an honor to meet you.

I’m glad you enjoyed it, John. And thank you for your comment.
I am loving your “Faces” series, both the stories and the faces. Is the Chamber of Commerce aware of the project? Also wondering if someone from the paper might be interested in doing a story on your project.
I haven’t approached anyone directly, but I’ve heard through the grapevine word is getting round. My blog traffic has exploded, so someone is looking!
Glad you are enjoying the project. I’m having a ball doing it, and I am meeting so many interesting people in the process.
