CureWear - a new t-shirt for cancer patients

Shared by Patricia Pereira on 2015-05-19 15:30

About the solution

A former Division I scholarship soccer player at Drexel University, Alex quickly nominated himself MVP- most valuable patient - and committed himself to making the most of treatment and life. Understanding the need and space for strengthened palliative care, Alex designed CureWear, a lifestyle apparel line designed to provide comfort for cancer patients during treatment. He developed the idea for the business during his lengthy chemotherapy treatments. Each time, he’d have to remove his shirt so caregivers could access the medical port implanted in his chest to deliver the chemo drugs. The black T-shirt features a port-accessibility patch that opens and closes with Velcro. It makes patient feels more comfortable. Parents, family, and friends who are there, see he/she a little more comfortable.

Alex died in April 2015, but his project is still going.
