Our mission is to improve the lives of children with pediatric cancer and to support their parents struggling under the financial strain of such a devastating diagnosis. Michael’s Way was founded in 2002 by Chris McElwee in memory of his late brother, Michael, who lost his battle with leukemia at the age of 25.
Non-medical out-of-pocket expenses associated with providing treatment for the cancer child have been shown to average 38% of the family’s gross annual income. However, there are very few charities in the Philadelphia area that reimburse non-medical expenses and the maximum amount paid out to families is often very low. Michael’s Way was founded to fill this need.
Since its inception, Michael’s Way has raised more than $6 million to lessen the financial hardships of hundreds of families whose children are suffering from cancer. 100% of money raised, as well as private donations and grants received from foundations goes directly to the families, not to overhead.
We try to ease the financial burden, so that families can concentrate on the real battle — saving their child’s life.
*The version currently being fulfilled is the remaining shirts that the team actually had, special made for the pro players only. Instead of DO, it says DOO for the designers last name.
Which box will you check today? Designed to motivate and inspire, Sean connects with this design in a number of ways. He landed on this shirt design for two reasons. First, it brings out the inner nerd in him that most of us can relate with. Secondly, and most importantly, the chosen quote embodies the magnitude of the challenge that children with pediatric cancer and their families face on a daily basis. You either can do something, or you don't do it... trying doesn't exist.
Men's style is a heather gray Tri-Blend (50% polyester, 25% combed ring-spun cotton, 25% rayon) cut to fit the athlete best. A little longer than normal to provide more movement room and better fit and comfort.
Women's style is a 60% combed ring-spun cotton for comfort, and 40% polyester for stretch, heather gray racerback tank. This tank is designed for a form fit that's not too tight, and not too loose.
