13thirty Cancer Connect, Inc. is a registered 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization established in 2001 following the death of Melissa Sengbusch who was 19 years old when she died of acute myeloid leukemia. Since its beginning (first called Melissa’s Living Legacy Teen Cancer Foundation), 13thirty has become an internationally known and respected leader in the field of adolescent and young adult (AYA) cancer because of our strong passion, clear vision, and steadfast commitment to a singular focus – teens and young adults with cancer. Unlike many other cancer support organizations, we concentrate our efforts and resources on a targeted national problem that affects approximately 82,000 young people in the United States each year. As Melissa asked of her mom, we are making a difference. We are making things better for teens and young adults with cancer around the world. 8% from every shirt sold will be donated to 13thirty Cancer Connect. Learn more at 13thirty.org.
My name is Victoria Horecki. I am 26 years old and I go to school at Buffalo State College for Fashion Design Technology with a concentration is design. I plan on graduating from college in the spring of 2019, and hopefully finding a job where I can create unique designs. My future goal is to one day bring the joy of shopping back to the people and designing for people of all shapes and sizes. I have a great passion for pop/nerd culture which I always find as an inspiration for many of my designs. I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
