"I purchased the long sleeve shirt for my best friend's husband whom was diagnosed with cancer. As a nurse I know the importance of access. I knew this would be the perfect shirt to keep my friend warm while allowing his nurses easy access and the ability to monitor his port. They gushed about the many compliments they received from the nurses for both functionality and style. Great design! Thank you!"
One Day Apparel was established for the purpose of carrying out a dear friend’s dying wishes – her wishes to aid those dealing with cancer and other grave illnesses. She, herself, was a fighter in the battle against cancer. But, throughout the battle, she lived every day to the fullest and constantly sought ways to make a difference in the lives of others fighting similar battles. She never stopped looking for ways to help both the sufferers and those who support them.
Everyone who knew Barbara will remember her as a kind and giving person who was always thinking of others rather than herself. Those who supported her during her battle with cancer will also remember her as warrior. A warrior who fought courageously, overcoming odds and exceeding medical expectations. She was a warrior who became an inspiration to all who witnessed her fight.
It was during this battle, with the seemingly endless procedures and treatments, that Barbara had an “Aha! Moment”. “What if there were garments purposely designed to make these treatments more dignified, comfortable and convenient?” And, what if the profits from the sale of these garments went directly to cancer research so that one day many could benefit?
With this, the idea for One Day Apparel was born and appropriately named to reflect Barbara’s philosophy of living life “one day at time”. Barbara’s days were few beyond her revelation but she entrusted her family with making her dream a reality. In her honor, we are pursuing her vision. The garments Barbara dreamed of have finally been perfected and are now offered alongside our “One Day” Tees, all of which help build awareness for our charitable mission. We sincerely hope that all who have been touched by cancer and share our passion for finding a cure will support our cause and spread the word to others. With your help, we can make this dream a reality one day sooner.
This project is the beginning of something big. And we mean big in a lot of ways – most notably, we hope to enhance every day for those dealing with cancer either as a patient or as a loved one.
We have achieved our first goal of producing a garment that we think will greatly benefit those undergoing treatment, and we hope it will become a movement in itself. At the heart of our mission is the goal to support cancer research through these efforts. All of the profits from our venture goes directly toward that aim!
Please stay tuned and keep in touch with us to help us achieve even larger goals!
We believe wholeheartedly in our mission to do good with the proceeds from One Day. We want to be open about where the funds are going when you contribute to One Day and its causes.
