“Sometimes, real superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles”
This is by far one of our biggest initiatives we could possibly think of as a small growing company. We want to change the lives of every child living with cancer by inspiring hope and confidence to take on their next chemotherapy treatment. We are going to do this by making them honorary superheros with there very own port access Super Hero top!
Cancer is a devastating diagnosis, and when we talk about children with cancer its even worse. Normally they don’t truly understand the complexities or the seriousness of the illness. Children are so amazing, in these moments they are more worried about their parents than they are for themselves. This is why we want to honor these amazing children.
As you may know Yellow Threads Co. makes clothing that allows health care providers access to a patients Port-o-cath (“port” for short) a central line access point located in the upper chest for infusion or blood draws during treatment. Roughly +95% of all children diagnoses with cancer receive these ports for their treatment. Over 43 children are diagnosed with cancer every day, and more than 40,000 children are going through active treatment every year!
Starting March 2019 we are launching our "Mission Cancer Hero's" Campaign for the year of 2019 and 2020. The years of the Super Heroes! We want to make every child going through chemotherapy treatment an Honorary Youth Team Superhero with there very own super hero cape, Youth Team shield, and Port access top! That is 40,000 new super heroes by the end of 2020! We love audaciously massive goals, because it means that we will be making a massive impact! We aim to instill confidence, bravery, and positivity into every child’s life that is going through treatment this year.
This program was sparked by our original Donate One Program that helped us launch our company by giving away 100 Fashionable Tops to 100 women living with cancer. The impact that one month created had us thinking about how massive of an impact can we create with a 2 full years!
To kick off the launch of our children line we created the Superhero Youth Team line. We understand that chemotherapy can be a very taxing time financially so we hope that the MISSION CANCER HEROES will be our way to support the families who's child are battling the toughest fight of their lives.
