'Band' Together

It started with a headband for kids with cancer. But since we launched in 2012, we've discovered dozens of amazing childhood cancer organizations that are enhancing the lives' of patients and working towards a cure. 
Our 'Band' Together series aims raise funds and awareness for these organizations through donating 10% of our proceeds to a designated organization that week.
August 14-20th 2016: The Andrew McDonough B+ Foundation
Headbands of Hope B+ Foundation
The Andrew McDonough B+ (Be Positive) Foundation was founded in 2007 following the passing of 14 year old, Andrew McDonough, to leukemia.  Less than 48 hours after helping his team win a Pennsylvania State Championship in soccer, Andrew was diagnosed with leukemia and went into septic shock and cardiac arrest.  The doctors did not expect Andrew to live through the night.  He survived that initial battle and, over the next 166 “bonus days”, Andrew underwent nearly 50 operations, 4 strokes, and a brain aneurysm before dying in his sister’s arms on July 14, 2007.
Andrew’s blood type, and the way he lived, was “B+” — Be Positive.

 June 19-25th 2016: The Rachel Lynn Henley Foundation

Headbands of Hope band together

In September of 2007, Rachel Lynn Henley was a freshman in high school, thriving in her new school as a great student and a strong and talented athlete. In November, at fourteen years old, Rachel's busy, happy life was turned inside-out when she was diagnosed with Synovial sarcoma - a rare soft tissue cancer that was found in her shoulder. After 7 months of chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries she was found to be cancer free in the Summer of 2008. However, in 2012, when it seemed like life was back to normal, Rachel and her family learned their worst nightmare had come true when Rachel's cancer returned with a vengeance - now in her lungs and in an area over her liver. 
Rachel endured 3 more years of
chemotherapy, radiation, and surgeries all with a beautiful smile on her face and positive spirit intact. Rachel chose to live her life to it's fullest and encourage others to do the same. Instead of feeling sorry for herself, she made the decision to make a positive difference in the world. Rachel wanted to give back as so many others had done for her. Rachel's battle ended on June 2, 2015, but she continues to inspire so many, every day.

October 16th-22nd 2016: Me Fine Foundation    

 

Me Fine Foundation, Inc. was founded by friends and family of Folden Lee IV who was diagnosed with AML Leukemia in May, 2003. He received several rounds of chemotherapy at UNC Children’s Hospital but relapsed shortly after treatment. He then survived two consecutive cord blood transplants and extensive radiation at Duke Children’s Hospital. In spite of gallant efforts, the leukemia cells once again returned. Folden was 2 years old. 

During the 15 month battle with this disease, Folden’s family found that along with the tremendous stress of caring for a child with a life threatening illness, most families are also weighted down with overwhelming medical costs. Additionally, families are obligated to provide personal outpatient housing and living expenses while their child is undergoing treatment. Some caregivers lose their jobs, their homes and are separated from other family members for extended periods while their child is receiving treatment. Resources for these kids are extremely limited.

Me Fine was founded in order to pool resources for families facing life changing challenges. No one can change what these children are forced to endure medically, but our combined efforts can certainly change the financial burdens of their caregivers and make their countless days in the hospital a little easier to endure.
