Mission & Values
Through meeting all these incredible people and experiencing first-hand how people would interact with us differently because we had cancer, I knew I wanted to change the 'pity' narrative that surrounds this disease. The image of cancer patients is severely underrepresented AND misrepresented by the media and industry. With all this talk around diversity it is shocking how often disabled and/or sick people are left out of the conversation when they comprise a huge, yet often invisible, population. We are more than being the target of inspiration porn and pity from the outside world and I want to champion the vulnerable beauty we hold and represent the diverse faces and bodies of people with this disease. Every model on this website has had cancer at least once.
I have put so much care and love into creating these scarves to be the exact products I wish I had during my chemo treatment. The scarves are sustainably made from up-cycled designer fabric that would have otherwise gone to landfill & manufactured in Australia to support our local economy. We also have completely plastic free packaging that is all recyclable and/or biodegradable. I have partnered with the incredible team at ‘Zero Childhood Cancer’ where 10% of the profits will be donated towards genetic research & clinical trials for incurable childhood cancers in the hopes that personalised medicine can be created for these kids which will ultimately save lives.
I hope that every purchase from ‘For Andy’ allows you to find solace in knowing you’re not alone despite whatever difficult circumstances have been thrown your way. I hope it encourages you to be vulnerable, feel more confident, and brings a touch of beauty and joy into your life, because who said you can't look cute when you're sick? So whether you’ve got cancer, know someone who has, or just want to support our mission, I hope you love these products all the same.
Your support of ‘For Andy’ means the whole world to me, and I hope I can do all of us cancer patients proud.
