Raising Awareness for Childhood Cancer by Tracy M. - 4 months ago
"Here are 4 cousins, best friends. These are my nieces and nephews. The three on the right are siblings, my younger sister's kids; the one on the right is my older sister's daughter. In 2011, after I took them to see the Harlem Globetrotters as a Christmas gift, they decided that they wanted to make an annual tradition out of it because they enjoyed it so much. Last year in 2012, Brittany, on the left, was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia just after we went to see the Harlem Globetrotters in February (the other 2 on the right wore masks in support of Brittany having to wear one). Through this, we've come to realize how little is done for children with cancer between funding, research, and coming up with newer and more effective treatments, even cures. Brittany is now in remission, and her body became healthy enough just in time to get to the 2013 show! We (my sisters and I) thought it would be fitting for us to debut the shirts at this year's Globetrotters show, in hopes of raising awareness and getting people to start realizing that this is a serious problem! We must've caught "Handles" (in the picture with the kids) eye because he had security bring us onto the court afterwards to meet some of the players and take pictures! All 8 of us were wearing these shirts, but we only have the kids in the picture. My experience working with CustomInk was smooth and easy. Designing the shirts was simple, and they kept in contact with me constantly from beginning to end! They even donated to the Foundation set up for Brittany! I will definitely be ordering more shirts in the future as more people start requesting them. "
