Mary Therese Rose Crilly was born on January 28, 1998 at the Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, New Jersey. She was warmly welcomed by her parents, her sisters Gina and Alycia, and her brother Matty. A few days after her birth, Mary was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder called Joubert Syndrome, which affects only a handful of children around the world.

Mary's case of Joubert Syndrome was extremely severe. The doctors at Valley have never before diagnosed a patient with the disease, and Mary's situation was one of the most complicated. Thus, their expectations were not high, and the doctors hoped she would live at most a few months. Mary and her family lived beyond such expectations, however, and for nearly five years celebrated Mary's inspirational life.

Joubert syndrome affects different parts of the brain. Because Mary's case of Joubert affected her cerebellum, she was unable to walk, talk, eat, or even breathe on her own. Also, she was blind in one eye and suffered from a serious liver condition. Despite all of her limitations, Mary was always joyful. Her brilliant blue eyes and breath-taking smile enriched people's hearts and souls.

Mary always lived her life to the fullest. The Crilly family never allowed her disability to interfere with, as quoted from the fund's brochure, "the joys of childhood". Mary went swimming, went on vacation, and even went horseback riding. She went on walks with her mom, sisters, brother, and her nurses almost every day. She also attended concerts, went apple picking, and even went on a few rides at the local carnival. Mary was always seen with a smile on her face as her family enabled her to enjoy her childhood.

Mary Therese Rose Crilly died on January 12, 2003, just weeks before her fifth birthday. It was with great sadness that her life ended, but with great comfort that she is still living through our hearts. Even in death, Mary's memory continues to inspire others each and every day.

The Mary Therese Rose Fund, established shortly after Mary's birth, is spreading the happiness that Mary had on earth to those children that could also "reclaim their joys of childhood". It is with great joy that Mary could spread such happiness, even after her death. As each child is able to enjoy the simple pleasures of childhood and life because of the fund, Mary's beautiful smile spreads from face to face. It is these smiles that will forever keep Mary's life a celebration of love, joy, hope, simplicity and happiness.

I just received my be brave necklace and I love it. I was so happy to help my friends daughter and love wearing the necklace to show my support.

Because the message is truly beautiful , it helps people to be brave and positive and remind them that there's someone who believes in them. �

I'm impressed with the quality and length of the necklace and even more impressed that a portion of the proceeds goes to Diabetes.


I am always unimpressed with chain quality on most necklaces and bracelets. These chains are high quality and durable. Great for a busy day to day wear


I love this necklace! I wear it every day and it is a great reminder to always be brave no matter the circumstance.


I bought two bracelets for two awesome friends fighting cancer and a necklace for me. Love them all. Happy with the quality and proud to support research for a cure!!

I love this necklace and wear it all the time. It is very attractive yet small and lightweight enough to be very comfortable. It works for both casual and dressy occasions.

I'm sure she's smiling down on you all and glad that this may bring awareness in hopes there's a cure soon.

I love my new Be Brave necklace! I was afraid that the gold would slowly rub off, but I've been wearing it for a few weeks straight, showers and all, and it still looks as good as new! Great necklace for a great cause!

Bought this necklace for my daughter as she asked for it for Easter in memory of my father - her grandfather. She loves it and wears it every day to represent the bravery her grandfather showed while battling this deadly disease


from La Porte, IN

I was looking for a necklace that I could wear everyday and this one fit the bill. Also, a portion of th money went to the Lupus Foundation, which is important to me because my mother suffers from Lupus. Now when I wear it everyday, I also think of her.


from New York

I was in love with this as soon as I got it. However, within a few weeks it started turning a dark, brassy color. Disappointed :(
