THE LEGEND OF THE LUCKY LIZARD
In 1999 on a children's hematology/oncology unit in a Syracuse, NY hospital, a 14 year old boy was having a "very bad day." One of his favorite caretakers, "CJ," entered his room with more optimism and energy than he desired her to have. She told him that the beaded creature hanging on her ID tag was bound to bring him good luck. He was not in the mood for her happiness and positivity and asked her to leave. As she left his room, she was rubbing her, "LUCKY LIZARD, and advised the boy she would return in 2 hours to assist him out of bed. "Everything will be fine," CJ told him. "This LUCKY LIZARD will make it so."
Despite his disbelief, he was helped out of bed a while later, and that same bundle of energy was standing by, rubbing the LUCKY LIZARD between her fingers. As the boy returned to his bed, he sat down very gingerly. After a big sigh of relief since, much to his surprise, everything was perfect, he pointed to CJ's LUCKY LIZARD, and said, "Give me one of those!"
Before you knew it, LUCKY LIZARDS were all over that hospital. It transformed the atmosphere of the unit and symbolized the strength of these special patients and their families as well as the special nurses, doctors, and paramedics like "CJ" who worked there.
Since 1999, LUCKY LIZARDS have been used to raise the spirits of people all over the world. They have also helped raise more than $10,000 for a number of charities including but not limited to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, The American Red Cross, and The Turn The Corner Foundation.
Presently, Caryn "CJ" Jaffe, has created a massive inventory of LUCKY LIZARDS as well as LUCKY LIZARD jewlery - ALL HANDMADE. ALL ONE OF A KIND! - with the goal of spreading the magic of the Legend of the Lucky Lizard all over the world. Some of them will be posted here.
