2019 September T-Shirts

Kids fighting cancer may be TINY but they sure are TOUGH!

Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
September is childhood cancer awareness month. In the US, 7 children die from cancer or its treatment every single day. Another 43 will be diagnosed today. This is not acceptable! Often times, people think that kids cancer is “being handled” but sadly, only 4% of the National Cancer Institute Budget goes to pediatric cancers. Breakthroughs and advances are largely funded by private family foundations. Wearing GOLD this September can help to raise awareness for kids’ cancers and show support for those fighting! Can you imagine how great it is for a kid with cancer to see someone else wearing GOLD for them??

Where will the t-shirt sales proceeds go?
Did you know that some kids with cancer are ready to be discharged from the hospital but have to stay because insurance isn’t covering their necessary medical supplies? Simple things like antibiotics?!?! Or that some pediatric cancer patients don’t have coverage so have to stay in patient when it’s not medically necessary??
For Emmi’s 3rd Birthday, we want to help get these kids home for the holidays! It costs about $1500 to get the medical supplies needed for a childhood cancer patient to go home. So this year, please consider helping us get these kiddos home for the holidays in honor of Emmi’s Birthday! Emmi Grace’s Angels exists to bring support to families fighting kids’ cancer and support research to END it!
Proceeds from t-shirt sales will go to Emmi Grace’s Angels Foundation- supporting families fighting kids’ cancers through outreach, awareness, and research! Check out EmmiGracesAngels.org or @EmmiGracesAngels for more info.

Who’s Emmi Grace?
Our beautiful youngest daughter Emmi Grace was born December 2015. In April 2016, she was diagnosed with the horrible beast AT/RT (an aggressive brain cancer). She was TINY BUT TOUGH! She underwent multiple surgeries and received intensive chemotherapy treatments. In spite of working with some of the best doctors and nurses in the field, the science failed her. She was born to eternal life in June 2016 at only 5 months old.

Cancer attacks families. We want to be there for families so that they know that these kids are TINY BUT TOUGH! And so are we!

Thank you for helping us to GO GOLD this September to support children fighting childhood cancers.

Emmi Grace’s Birthday Fundraiser

In honor of Emmi’s upcoming 2nd birthday, we have launched our newest fundraiser.

Those amazingly comfortable shirts that were available last year are back and better than ever with a new design!

The purpose of this fundraiser-

Did you know that there are children who are medically ready for discharge but have to stay in-patient because their insurance does not cover the cost of the medical supplies they would need to go home?  Or because they are underinsured or uninsured?  Can you imagine having a child with cancer and stuck in the hospital- not because of necessary treatment but because you simply cannot afford to take them home??  On average, it costs about $1500 for a child to get the necessary supplies to go home!

Well, for Emmi’s birthday, we are aiming to get as many of these kids home for the holidays as we can and we need your help!

Please consider making your donation today!  You can help us by:

  1. Ordering a shirt
  2. Sharing this post so that others may order
  3. Sponsoring a child- and get featured on our website and social media (unless you’d prefer to do so anonymously)
  4. Making a direct donation to EGA.  This can be done through PayPal or you can simply mail us a check.

However you decide to help, we thank you!!
