It’s here, it’s here, it’s finally here! THE NEW CMW

Sophia Rossomando

When Cancer Messed first launched in 2017, it was created with a little girl in mind. A little girl who changed her community by taking a stand against her hardships, being brave in the face of adversity, and remaining positive through it all.

Isabella Santos was two years old when she was diagnosed with stage IV neuroblastoma. Isabella, her family, her doctors, and those around her fought hard to save her life. After fighting bravely for five years, Isabella lost her battle in 2012.

From the very beginning, Isabella’s family used the rallying cry of “cancer messed with the wrong (family and kid)” as they fought for and with her. To honor her, and to support, empower, and inspire others. Because of this, The Isabella Santos Foundation set out to create support apparel for all fighters and support systems in need of a little inspiration. This is how Cancer Messed With apparel came to life.

That was then, and this is NOW. Our team has been working around the clock the past few months to bring you new designs and a new vision. A vision to support ALL fighters, not just our brave cancer warriors. We thought to ourselves: how can we make this bigger than just an impactful slogan on a shirt? How can we bring more communities of people together and spread more hope in our community? All while continuing to raise money for pediatric cancer. 

We landed on the concept of our apparel making people FEEL good, LOOK good and DO good. 

Feel good knowing the apparel they wear is inspirational and bringing them positive vibes. 

Look good wearing our designs because they are trendier than ever with more releases to come in the future. 

Do good helping fund research and a cure for pediatric cancer right here in Charlotte, NC. 

Become a part of something bigger than just purchasing a trendy, inspirational t-shirt. Help fund a cure for rare pediatric cancer. Bring communities of people together for a common cause. Cancer affects children and families no matter who they are, what they look like, and what they believe.

Together we can support. Together we can cure.
