Fashion for a Cure


10.16.14 For those who’ve been with me for awhile, you know I don’t wear graphic t-shirts (except when working out!), so I’ve never styled one here. I also don’t delve into my personal life or politics. Today is an exception because this particular graphic t-shirt has a message near to my heart. WeWillRemedy was started by my friend Jaret to bring attention to Type 1 Diabetes (T1D). When he asked if I would be interested in helping out I knew it was the right thing to do. You see, my 13 year old granddaughter has Type 1 Diabetes. Miss Ry was diagnosed at age 6 and although it doesn’t define her, it has changed her (and our family’s) life forever.

There are very few things in this life I hate. Type 1 Diabetes is one of them. There are approximately 3 million Americans affected by Type 1 – and as many as 15,000 children and adults are diagnosed every year. And as of now there is no cure. But there is hope. A portion of the proceeds from sales of all WeWillRemedy t-shirts sold will be donated to JDRF. JDRF is the only global organization with a strategic plan to bring those living with T1D a continuous flow of life-changing therapies and, ultimately, a cure for the disease. You can find out more information at T1D at jdrf.org. If average people like you, me and Jaret do something – no matter how small – we CAN make a difference.

  2. My 13 year old niece in Phoenix was also diagnosed at age 6 with Type 2 diabetes. Type 1 diabetes runs in my family. My dad also had it and actually died of its complications.

    Thanks for your edgy and sophisticated approach to wearing the promotional t-shirt. You did it up right.
