A Copper Winged Heart in Honor - Menkes Awareness



winged heart urn for ashes



This winged heart urn was handmade at half-depth to hold a smaller portion of ashes. It was created to honor a little boy who passed from this world too soon.  Little Braxton and his family fought a hard fight during his two short years on Earth.

He was afflicted with the condition known as Menkes Disease. It is caused by mutations in the copper transport gene, which is responsible for making a protein that is important for regulating the copper levels in the body. Primarily affecting baby boys, Menkes syndrome is terminal within the first few years of life, and currently there is no cure.

We pray that Braxton's family finds comfort and peace as they honor his spirit and mourn the loss of their little one.
