There is nothing comfortable about cancer. 

Through innovative design, CUREWEAR allows patients to keep their clothes on while providing nurses and doctors the access they need to administer medicine.

CUREWEAR provides you with the opportunity to wear clothing that stands for a cause, while helping those going through treatment for cancer or chronic illness feel comfortable and confident.

Once CUREWEAR is up and running, a portion of the proceeds from each supporter shirt purchased will go towards the production of a shirt for a patient. Whether it is for a family member, a friend, or even a stranger, wearing CUREWEAR shows that we stand together and never alone. Let us stand together. We got this!

Made in USA

90% Poly, 10% Spandex.  Dry Sport.

Stretch Goal: $50,000

We're beyond excited to have hit our initial fundraising goal so quickly! It shows how many people are touched by what CureWear stands for, we are extremely proud of that. Of course, the more money we raise, the more people we'll be able to help feel more comfortable and confident with CureWear. 

Hitting our stretch goal of $50,000 will enable us to expand the CureWear line to to accommodate the fall/winter season (we know, nobody wants to think about fall and winter). With the additional funds, we will be able to start the design and manufacturing process on long-sleeved apparel, for patients and supporters alike.

Risks and challenges

Awareness among cancer patients. CureWear will make patients' lives more comfortable, but obstacle #1 is making sure patients know about it. The CureWear team is dedicated to spreading the word; my own doctors and nurses are even on board. We're committed to making sure all patients know that a way of feeling comfort & confidence is available.

Patient demand. In 2014, there will be an estimated 1,665,540 new cancer cases diagnosed according to the American Cancer Society. The challenge for CureWear is serving this unfortunately rapidly growing group.

Spreading the CureWear message. CureWear intends on leveraging a viral social media campaign in conjunction with the brand to help spread the message and inspire everyone through the clothing they wear, and through daily inspirational posts on all social media fronts.

Competitive athletic wear landscape. Athletic wear can be pricey. While CureWear is made from the same top-notch materials, your CureWear purchase stands for something meaningful, thus making CureWear stand out from the rest.

Growing too fast. CureWear is starting with a limited line of athletic apparel (the shirts you see on this page), but we know you want more than just an athletic shirt. That's why we already have plans to extend the line to include other garments. We are excited that some backers will get to help collaborate on what we release next!
