Cancer: The ultimate battle, one in which we've been fighting as far as history could show. While many lose the battle on a daily basis, others are fortunate to come out on top. Its name is so vicious that it sends a cold chill down the spine. I have seen relatives and friends play victim of its impact. Fortunately, we, as a society, as human beings, will not give up the fight. Each day, individuals and organizations work towards providing support, while raising funds and awareness, as we help scientists and researchers get closer to finding a cure for all different types of cancer. One of those individuals is Peter Deltondo, a graphic designer out of Southern California. He, his wife, and a few friends have come up with an idea that will help continue the passion of fighting cancer and raising awareness.
When Peter's mom was diagnosed with breast cancer earlier this year, Peter and his designer friends decided to create Design vs Cancer, an awareness platform consisting of clothing apparel and prints. For them "this project is all about the design community coming together and working as a team to create inspiring and uplifting apparel & prints." Consisting of talented designers who put their heart into making the designs, some of the Design vs Cancer products "have a focus on cancer, while others are just plain cool!" The designs are creative, while showing the personal touch and passion needed to bring them to life.
As we all do our part in contributing to help raise funds and awareness, I'm glad to see Design vs Cancer on a crowdfunding platform. They have a great set of products, and an even bolder mission. I would love to see their efforts become a reality, for their efforts are going towards an important cause. I hope that down the road, they begin to adopt the concept of partnering with an organization and raise funds for research, in addition to their foundation of raising awareness.
Overall, the idea of fighting the good fight against cancer POPs.
