The Texas Children’s Cancer Center has a new partner in its fight against childhood cancer.

Montblanc, known for its high-end pens, has created a collection of woven bracelets, with $50 of each bracelet purchased donated to Texas Children’s Cancer Center.

"We’re enthusiastic about this partnership and what it means for our Cancer Center, hospital and, most importantly, our patients," said Dr. David Poplack, director of the Texas Children’s Cancer Center and professor of pediatrics – hematology/oncology at BCM. "Through this piece of jewelry, anyone can show their support and help us in the fight against pediatric cancer."

The bracelet is crafted of black woven leather with a sterling silver clasp bearing the Texas Children’s logo.

Social commitment is an integral part of Montblanc’s philosophy. Past charitable partnerships have included UNICEF, Best Buddies International and the Princess Grace Foundation – USA.

The bracelet is available in the Montblanc store at the Houston Galleria and on the Montblanc website.

The Texas Children’s Cancer Center is a joint program of Baylor College of Medicine and Texas Children’s Hospital.
