In Aug 2017 I was diagnosed with cancer I had treatment and surgery but in Dec of the same year I found another lump and was diagnosed again with a different cancer. I have had chemotherapy, radiotherapy, 9 surgeries, and am on medication for life. The cancer also gave me 2 strokes. At some point during all this I decided to start an athleisure company where I donate the proceeds to local cancer charities. I’ve seen first hand the amazing work these charities do. From therapies and counceling to information and support to just a place to meet up with people in the same situation and understand what you’re going through. These charities are so important they may not be as big as your cancer research and the like but they concentrate on the individual and the work they do is incredibly important.
Although I call it a business I haven't taken a wage since I started, back in sept 2018 (although it’s definitely on my list of things to do in the future) as I’m passionate about raising money and awareness. At Fucclothing we also do challenges and think of fun ways we can raise awareness and work on all kinds of ideas. We put together a calendar for 2019, marathons, long distance bike rides, auctions, even a death nut challenge and many more. There’s always something in the pipeline.
FUC stands for Eff you cancer. It may sound harsh but believe me if you have ever been diagnosed that’s how you and anyone else effected feels. Please help me help others and raise funds and awareness for a disease which 1 in 2 of us will end up with (scary but true facts). Check out the website where you can buy items virtually guilt free as you know the proceeds go to charity. Or please just donateand help me build the business for a wider audience to help more people. Ive managed to donate around £6000 now thanks to fantastic support from others.
