Chemo-Couture: Cancer Stinks!
Allow me to introduce you to Chemo-Couture, an online boutique offering a variety of cancer-themed gifts ranging from inspirational t-shirts, books, and cozy blankets (you can never have too many of those when you're going through chemo). It was founded by Jane and Julie, two creative entrepreneurs whom I had the pleasure of meeting last summer. They decided to take the fight to cancer with a sense of humor and compassion, realizing that these are two powerful tools to have on your side when facing the disease, and are donating 5% of sales to cancer charities.
While brainstorming ideas for their line of apparel, they envisioned a shirt with a skunk that proclaimed, "Cancer Stinks!" and after seeing The Daily Zoo, they asked me if I would be interested in designing it. Two versions were produced and they're available in both children's and adult sizes.
