Hey Nice Nation!
Have you heard? Giving back is rock ‘n roll.
Together with the Dear Jack Foundation, created by Andrew McMahon, LWP has created a rockin’ new style that gives back to adolescents and young adults diagnosed with cancer. Their goal is to provide support to patients, survivors, and their families both physically and emotionally, and to let them know that they are not in a one-man band.
From every bracelet purchased, 25% of net proceeds will help support those most in need.
Andrew McMahon, of Jack’s Mannequin, was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia at the age of 23. In an effort to initiate change and provide a voice for the generations of young adults who have been diagnosed with cancer, Andrew McMahon founded the Dear Jack Foundation in July of 2006.
Since then, the Dear Jack Foundation has served hundreds of young adult cancer patients and survivors through programs that provide support and community to a demographic far too often forgotten.
Inspired by the Jack’s Mannequin song, ‘Swim’, this beaded bracelet is a symbol of hope, courage, and resilience. Dark days and tidal waves happen. Swim anyway. Believe with all your heart that brighter days are ahead.
“When I was diagnosed, I learned quickly about the struggles facing young adults with cancer. Through your support, you can help us touch more lives and bring more awareness to this underserved community.” - Andrew McMahon via https://www.dearjackfoundation.org/about/
