Treasure Valley man makes bracelets for anyone touched by cancer

BOISE - If you or someone you know has cancer, a Treasure Valley man wants you to know you're not alone.

Tim Stanley stopped by KBOI 2News to show us the bracelets he's making for anyone who's been through cancer, going through it, or has been a caregiver.

His bracelets are free.

Stanley says he's walked the cancer journey before, which is why you'll see him covered head to toe in pink.

"I tell people, I've been there, done that, seen the movie and I don't like it, but I can identify with people that have gone through it, or maybe in remission," he said.

Stanley's wife Sandra was 55 when she died of cancer in November 2010.

Treatment included radiation of her tongue and eventually having it cut out.

Stanley says despite the aggressive treatments, she never gave up.

"Probably my best memory of her: her faith and trust in God," he said. "She knew where she was going to go when she passed away. She said, 'I know where I'm going to go,' and there was no fear in her. She wasn't terrified."

Stanley says she wrapped her Christmas gives that October, knowing she wouldn't see the following Christmas in 2010.

She donated her body to science.
