Why I Write

In 2013 I graduated with a degree in Communication with a minor in Journalism. I dreamt of using my degree to work for a non-profit and make a change in the world. Just like any other college student, I had the world at my finger tips and wanted to dive straight in.

My life was changed forever when my mom and best friend was diagnosed with Stage 4 T-Cell Prolymphocytic Leukemia. I could go into the science of it but just like any other cancer diagnosis, it sucks. How is it Stage 4 already? Why does it have to be my mom? We can fight this…right?

On September 27, 2014 my mom passed away. My beautiful and amazing mother was no longer my encourager in life. A part of me was missing and it is possible for your heart to literally hurt.

Believe it or not, seeing others happy and making someone smile is what got me through to today. My mom loved to see others happy and even through all of her pain still found joy in the little things.

I write in honor of her and to always put good in the world.

Social and Environmental Change

Movember Foundation

There are many creative ways to support a favorite charity. Including running a marathon, having a fashion show, and making friendly competition. One unique organization sparked the idea that a moustache could still be a fashion trend. It became a challenge among friends that would grow into a movement.

       Movember has become a monthly event that takes place all over the world every November. The Movember Foundation focuses on prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health and suicide prevention. Their vision is to have an everlasting impact on the face of men’s health. Men AND Women can take part in the global movement that helps to stop men from dying too young. Grow a moustache, move for Movember, host an event, or fundraise. Men’s health needs to be addressed and we moustache you a question. Will you join Sevenly in supporting The Movember Foundation?

       Sevenly’s Good Men Collection supports health in a father, brother, and a friend. Join the conversation and help to tackle men’s health around the globe. Purchase a shirt for the man in your life that fights the good fight.
