Shelton Jewelers sponsors a wish through Jewelers for Children!


Shelton Jewelers with Jewelers for Children grant a wish for Claudia Quave!

Every year JFC (Jewelers for Children) partners with Make-A-Wish and helps provide support. Thanks to the generosity of jewelry trade organizations, jewelry and watch manufacturing companies, jewelry retail stores, individual jewelry professionals, and jewelry consumers more than 1,425 children have been granted wishes in the U.S.

This year Make-A-Wish Mississippi would like to send a special thanks to Shelton Jewelers in Ocean Springs, Mississippi for granting Claudia, 8, her wish to go to the Bahamas and swim with the Dolphins.

In early 2015 when Claudia was 8, she was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare soft tissue childhood cancer, in early 2015.  Her cancer was discovered after she went to the doctor experiencing bleeding that was believed to be a urinary tract infection, kidney stone or early menstruation; but turned out to be a polyp.

Claudia is a vibrant little girl who loves being outdoors and the water. She loves to swim in pools, going to the beach and going out in boats.

In July Claudia was told she was going to eat dinner with her family at her favorite restaurant but was surprised to find out that it was more than dinner. It was a surprise celebration where she was showered with gifts by Shelton Jewelers and told the exciting news that her wish had been granted. Shelton Jewelers, knowing of Claudia’s love of dolphins gave her a special bracelet and necklace with dolphins on them. “I will never forget the surprise and excitement that I got to witness on Claudia’s face when she learned that this was her Wish Party.” –Cathy, Shelton Jewelers.
