A New Year!

Well I’m ready to start the new year!  Half way through my masters program and a full year under my belt at Archway Programs (my employer)…  2012 is poised to be a great year.   Unfortunately 2011 had some unexpected disappointments — a couple close friends were diagnosed with cancer, and I lost my uncle to lung cancer.  Just more of a reason to keep ChemoClothes going as a great outlet for not patients, families, and friends, but also myself!

ChemoClothes is real excited about our three annual events (with our Bowling event only 2 months away), our new website, and much much more.  Keep following us on our social medias and don’t be shy to comment or like our updates!

3rd Annual Bowl Over Cancer- Date Set!

After a busy two weeks with ChemoClothes, we’re starting to settle down.  Today we’re bringing gifts to one of the families we’re helping this year.  I hope they like their presents!  An Ipod, roller skates, pajamas, and more!  Definitely fun gifts to buy :)  

Bowl Over Cancer will be March 24th from 1-4pm at Laurel Lanes once again!  It’s been very successful in the past and I hope that we’re able to make it special again.  Be sure to keep an eye out for when lanes go on sale!

Other than that, I hope that everyone has a great and safe holiday season!

A big “thank you” to Philadelphia University

Some 65 students in fashion design, fashion merchandising and fashion industry management made items to benefit ChemoClothes. The students designed, merchandised, produced and marketed the products for their class this semester and will donate their items to ChemoClothes. The students will present the projects tomorrow from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. in The Tuttleman Auditorium at Philadelphia University, off School House Lane in the East Falls section of Philadelphia. Some of the items made by the students for ChemoClothes include: student-designed blankets that can fold up into pillows; hand-knit infinity scarves to give patients warmth and comfort, with a cancer ribbon charm attached; fleece headbands adorned with accessories; hand-crocheted headbands for baby girls; carry-on totes; and hand-made “bohemian” baby bibs. For more information on Philadelphia University go to www.PhilaU.edu. Thanks again! We are honored and privileged to have work with such inspiring and caring individuals.

Lately ChemoClothes has been in discussions with our top notch graphic designer and web developer on a newer, more interactive, and fresher website design.  Everything is very exciting.  Additionally the bowling event is in the works.  Bowl Over Cancer is slated for late March, so mark your calendars!

It’s been a while!

Sorry I haven’t been keeping everyone up to date on ChemoClothes events!  Things have been a little out of sorts since I started an MBA program.  However, we have been posting on facebook and twitter, so be sure to look us up there!

We’re currently looking for families to support for the holidays, so please contact us regarding that.  And keep checking for our next event, which will be an old school beef and beer!  (Hopefully in early November)
