Once in awhile you get the chance to really make a difference. To bring about change for the better. This is my chance. I designed these Fight Like a Girl t-shirts in hopes of encouraging other women to tap into their inner strength, recognize their beauty and embrace their uniqueness. But, they’re not just t-shirts. They’re also a way to raise funds and awareness for women’s cancer. My hope is after reading this post and hearing the story behind this line, you’ll decide to join me in the #FightLikeAGirl movement.
*You can purchase all t-shirts HERE
My momma, Angela, is the inspiration behind this line. She was diagnosed with Stage 4 Ovarian Cancer back in 2011.For those of you that aren’t familiar with Ovarian Cancer, it’s very hard to detect. Once doctors find it, it’s oftentimes too late. It was devastating news for the entire family, but my mom decided early on that she wasn’t going to be another statistic. She was going to fight.
She went through chemo the first time, and beat it. Yay! Cancer free! We all celebrated. Then it popped up again. And again. And again. I think she’s now on her fifth treatment. Honestly, I lost count. All the while, she continued to work as a real estate agent, have craft nights with her girlfriends, visit family all over the country, etc. She’s overcome the odds and is still surprising her doctors. One of them even calls her an anomaly. (Definition: something that deviates from what is standard, normal, or expected.) Basically, she’s a bad-ass in pearls.
That’s why I started this line and why I named each and every t-shirt after real-life women who have defined what it means to #FightLikeAGirl. I hope whenever you wear one of these t-shirts you not only feel empowered, but help empower those around you.
These t-shirts don’t just help raise awareness, they also help raise much-needed money for women’s cancer research. Twenty percent of the proceeds for “The Angela“, “The Kaye” and “The Mona” will all benefit the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. Twenty percent of proceeds for “The Audrey” will benefit the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
