A little bit about what you're supporting...


 

"One life lost is one life too many" - GIST Cancer Research Fund

As many of you know, my mom was a hardworking, fun-loving woman who devoted her life to saving and improving the lives of others.  In 2001 she was diagnosed with GIST Cancer and though it slowed her down, it did not stop her.  It was a rough battle for her to fight.  But it was a battle that I like to say she ultimately won by learning to celebrate life to the fullest and accomplish all her goals before this disease took her from us on July 19th, 2008.  During her battle with GIST she had two missions: in addition to saving the lives of the babies she worked with every day, she was also determined to obliterate GIST.

GIST (Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor) Cancer affects around 5,000 people in the US each year.  These tumors will begin anywhere in the GI tract, but most commonly the stomach.  Treatments involved are aggressive, expensive and not always reliable.  Research has improved quite a bit in the last ten years but there's still a long way to go.  With this being a rare cancer, not many know about it and it's victims and researchers don't always get the love that they need and deserve.  All of the money raised for patients is privately given because GIST is so rare that the American Cancer Society doesn't even recognize it for funding.  Let's change this and work together to support finding a cure.

Tlingit Native Bear Claw Comb

Donated by James Johnson & Ngrained.  I found this talented Tlingit artist on instagram a couple years ago when I discovered he loved to paint Vans.  Turns out, he is very connected in the action sports industry as we works in an art collaboration with Volcom sponsored snowboarders Jamie Lynn & Mark Landvik.  James himself belongs to the Ch'aak' Dakl'aweidi Clan (Eagle Killerwhale) from Juneau, AK and all of his art is authentic Tlingit art.  He has been featured in many Native American art shows all over the US and he even did a piece for my dad's house on Orcas Island last Christmas.  His work is truly inspiring.   To learn more check out N-grained's website here.
