Walking for Tomorrows by Kat Draper,RN - over 1 year ago
"I am a pediatric nurse working in a large children's hospital. My floor serves many specialties, and cystic fibrosis is one of them. These kids spend weeks and weeks at a time with us, so you can imagine that we get to know them and their families very well. As a nurse, it amazes me the risilience and bravery that these children possess. This is my second year I have led our unit in fundraising and raising awareness by taking part in our local Great Strides Event. Since only 30,000 children and young adults suffer with CF in the United States, it receives no federal funding. The search for a cure for these kids lies solely with us! Our team was able to raise over 5000$ this year! Our t-shirt was drawn and designed by one of our CF patients. It is a beautiful pair of lungs that reads: "Breathe" on the front, and "Keep Calm and Cure CF" on the back. Custom Ink was recommended to a friend who used them recently for a business function. We knew we wanted to work with someone who would take care of our precious artwork, and make sure that we got the perfect product in the end! The team at Custom Ink was great from start to finish, and even made a donation to our cause. We walk to add tomorrows!"
