OUR STORY


About Yellow Threads Co.

Profile-Image-Ashton-Brittany

Yellow Threads Co. was founded by husband and wife team Ashton and Brittany Harvey with the simple mission to instill hope and confidence into the lives of men, women and children living with cancer. They wanted to make the treatment process as simple and safe as possible for everyone involved wile also looking fashionable. Our mission as a company is to have every person wearing our product feels empowered to live a life defined by themselves, NOT by their cancer.

As an registered nurse in oncology, Brittany saw first hand the struggles that patients went through on a daily basis trying to find proper clothing that not only looked nice but also allowed access to their ports.  

"Patients would come in wearing low cut tops or baggy sweatshirts, things that they would not normally wear in every day life. They would end up tugging and pulling at their shirts so that I could access their port. I thought why hasn't anybody come up with a fashionable and stylish tops that could be worn in every day life, and also serve the purpose of allowing a nurse access to their port? That's how Yellow Threads was started"- Brittany Harvey

We aim to bring a sense of normalcy into a patients life in a time of confusion and uncertainty. Going through Chemotherapy or any long term infusion process is already tough enough. We want to be able to make dressing for chemo a positive process. Just because you don't feel good doesn't mean you cant look GREAT! 

We also believe in the power of giving back so we made it our mission to donate $200,000 by December 31st 2021. For every item purchased, $5 will be donated to cancer research and cancer foundations that are dedicated to finding a cure and enriching the lives of people living with cancer.
