~Special Post~ Susan G Komen Sweater

A very good friend of mine and store co-owner of [spork] , GM Nikolaidis, has created a sweater to support cancer research.  That’s right, 100% of proceeds will support “Susan G. Komen for the Cure (c)”.

Please show your support for this cause.  You can purchase the sweater from his store, [spork]. Even, feel free to go directly to the SGK website to make your donation today.

Here’s why GM had created this sweater (taken from his Flickr): “It just started out being a simple virtual sweater with a generic name. Barbara made a suggestion that we name it “Judy”.

Judy was Barbara’s best friend. They grew up in Newfoundland and were practically sisters. When Barbara moved to Georgia for our wedding, they stayed in touch constantly. They would mail packages full of treats to each other. Judy would send chocolate candy that you could only get up north, and Barbara would send unusual advertising pens which Judy collected, and other souvenirs from the south. There was no way that geography would prevent these two best friends from sharing their everyday life moments. A few years after we were married Judy confided in Barbara that she had cancer. Chemo treatments kept the disease in check for a while, but in 2002 Judy lost the battle.

Now, the little virtual sweater has a purpose. It’s pink, of course, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this sweater will go to benefit “Susan G. Komen for the Cure (c)”. You can also go directly to the website we set up and make a donation in Judy’s honor.”

Thank you GM & Barbara for taking time to help raise awareness and show support to this amazing cancer foundation.
