Team Doodles! by Julie - 4 months ago

Team Doodles! T-Shirt Photo

"This photo was taken at Summit Educational Resources in Getzville, NY, at the annual walk for autism awareness. As you can see, Team Doodles was out in full force, despite the pouring rain and chilly temperatures! Autism now affects 1 in 68 children, and Summit is an amazing school in Western New York that provides education and support to children and families affected by autism. My daughter, Maggie (pictured in front in the striped hoodie), was diagnosed with autism almost 6 years ago, right after her 2nd birthday. Since then, Summit has been so important to our family, and this walk helps to raise funds to support all of the amazing programs they provide for over 2000 children in our area! We are honored to participate in this walk every year, and all of our friends and family join us to support our Maggie-Doodles! CustomInk was a pleasure to work with! I was in contact with so many people from the company that made sure my design was phenomenal and the ordering process was painless and worry-free. The shirts were delivered in record time, and as you can see, they look fantastic! "

"This photograph was taken in Salisbury, MD at the 2014 March of Dimes walk! Our son was born in 2012 at only 33 weeks gestation! Every year we do the walk in honor of him and how far he has come! This year was extra emotional for our team as my cousin had her baby at only 22 weeks gestation. He lived a short 11 days. The back of our shirts were in memory of him. We love and miss you Oliver! Working with custom ink was great and can't wait to start our design for next year! "

March for Babies 2014 by Team Kindness for Colton - 4 months ago

March For Babies 2014 T-Shirt Photo

"Had a fantastic first experience with Customink, it couldn't have been easier to upload our artwork and order our team shirts for our teams first March for Babies walk in St. Louis, in honor of my nephew Colton. He died just shy of his first birthday and spent his first 6 months in the NICU. But in his short time he touched so many with his story, his strength, his love and after his passing his family asked for those touched by him to continue his name by doing random acts of kindness. Hence the name of our team. We raised over $4000 for March for Babies, so with that money Colton can continue to touch and change lives as he did to those that got to meet him."

Team Matty - Head for the Cure 5k Wichita, KS by Team Matty - 4 months ago

Team Matty   Head For The Cure 5k Wichita, Ks  T-Shirt Photo

"For us, it started out like any other Saturday morning. We had breakfast and then Matt was off to get his eyes checked as we were sure that was what was causing his headaches. Not long after he arrived at the Dr’s office he sent a text “They want me to get an MRI”. Within a few hours we heard the words that would change our lives forever. “A very large mass on the right front lobe of your brain. It is cancer.” He was 20 years old. By Sunday afternoon, 24 hours later, the tennis ball size tumor had been removed, or at least 90% of it. Matty bounced back like a true warrior despite major pain and swelling and on Thursday afternoon we walked out of the hospital, confident that the worst was behind us. Within a few weeks the swelling was so bad that they had to put in a VP shunt. Within about a month they removed the shunt as it had caused massive infection. He was now experiencing grand mal seizures, loss of memory and functionality. Shortly after that he was fired from his job and we added major anxiety and depression to our list of issues. Basically, everything that could go wrong did go wrong. He continued to focus on school and within just over a year he graduated top of his class at ITT Tech. It was truly a highlight of his life. After 6 weeks of radiation, 11 months of chemo and 5 stays in the hospital we finally heard the words “no evidence of tumor” and it looked like we were finally getting a break! With his confidence at an all-time high he accepted a job in San Francisco, California and we moved him out there. There were many struggles during the 18 months he was there. He had just gotten his dream job working for Google when we realized the infection had never really gone away and two more surgeries would be required. The first was to remove the infected brain plate and start him on aggressive antibiotics. Of course, during that time the cancer returned and by the time they were able to replace the brain plate the tumor had grown to the size of a fist. It was stage 4 and angry. The doctor was so aggressive in the recession of the tumor for the fifth and final surgery that Matty lost half of his eyesight in both eyes, the use of his entire left side, his short term memory and some of his cognitive skills. We managed to get him home to Valley Center, Kansas after an extensive stay in the hospital and quickly signed up for a clinical trial through Mayo Clinic. But to no avail. Just days after his 24th birthday, we were told there was nothing more they could do. Matty wanted to go home and party with his family and friends and that is just what we did. For the 3 weeks and 3 days he was with us we opened our home to anyone, anytime. Friends and family came from all over the country to spend time with him, reminisce about the good times and embrace the present, soaking in every moment with him. It was such a difficult time filled with tears, laughter, heartbreak, stress and always love. Lots of love. Matthew came into this world on a Sunday morning at 8:53am as a content happy baby boy and left on a Sunday morning at 8:35am as a peaceful young man ready to let go of this life and seek out new adventures. During his entire fight Matthew displayed a kindness and gentleness that amazed us all. He always thanked everyone for their assistance and never lost his patience, despite severe pain at times. He was constantly trying to help people feel comfortable with his cancer, with a ready quip or comeback to make them laugh. Often times when a nurse finally arrived with pain meds to help with a horrible headache he would purpose marriage and make them know he appreciated their efforts. His final effort to help others was to donate his body to science. It was his hope that somehow he just might help find a cure so others would not have to endure what he did. We intend to continue his legacy by contributing to and becoming involved in all of the various organizations focused on brain tumor research. Our wish is for everyone to enjoy today, whatever it brings, make the most of it. Our dear Matthew is gone in body but he lives on in our hearts and our memories. We are all better people for having shared in his journey and experienced first hand his determination and courage while never losing his sense of humor. Matthew is our hero and we just hope that we can make him as proud of us as we are of him! "

"For the past 3 years my family has walked the March of Dimes "walk for babies." My twin boys were born at 35 weeks unknowingly on the verge of dying in utero. Grady is our survivor, he had 2 NICU stays and Cullen died after a 5 hour fight. We miss him everyday. I wonder ALL the time what life would be like with both my little boys. Every year we make shirts in memory of Cullen with Customink. "
