Going Gold for Team Mathias #12

Our friend, Roya Giordano, has a wish for all of us.  That wish; go gold for the month of September. 

Why "go gold"?  And why September?

Because gold is the official ribbon color for pediatric cancer, and September is the National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month.

Roya & Chris, like many parents in similar circumstances, are courageously fighting cancer's trials with their child, with the humble wish to raise more awareness.  Not just for their loved ones, but for all children. 

As we know; with awareness, comes funding.  With funding, comes scientific studies.  With scientific studies, comes answers, potential vaccines, new treatments and possibly cures.

In honor of Mathias Giordano, (Roya and Chris's 12 year old son, and Troy's older brother), who has fought osteosarcoma with bravery and grace since July 2012, we have created a special set of MagnifiCuffs.

For those of you unfamiliar with MagnifiCuffs, they are magnetic apparel accessories that can be worn to cuff pants into capris, or serve as decorative accents for shirt sleeves.

As shown in the picture collage below, to assist with raising awareness and funds, we have created gold ribbon MagnifiCuffs with Mathias's soccer number "12".

Sets can be purchased at our online store for $9.95, plus $2.50 for shipping and handling. 

As designated by Mathias, 100% of the proceeds will go to his chosen charity, Kyle's Kamp,  in honor and loving memory of his friend Gavin Rupp who just passed away on July 30th after 30 months of battling cancer. 

Together we can "go gold" and help raise awareness and funds for pediatric cancer.  In addition to going gold with your MagnifiCuffs, you will also directly benefit Kyle's Kamp and visibly show the Giordano's your support for Team Mathias.
