Support Team Victoria!

Due to high demand Team Victoria Shirts are going in for a third order! Over 1,000 shirts have been purchased so far!

Victoria Marsh’s family are selling t-shirts to show our support for Victoria in her journey with Osteosarcoma, a form of bone cancer. Victoria was diagnosed in December and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments. Victoria is a beautiful, energetic 13 year old who happens to have Down syndrome - she also drew the beautiful t-shirt design.

T-shirts are $7 each (at cost of $5 and $2 shipping), please follow this link to place your order by clicking on "register for this event" on the righthand upper side of this page above the date. Shirts will be mailed once they arrive.

Order Deadline TBA. Any questions please email info@dsadelaware.org.

If anyone is interested in supporting any of the charities that have supported Team Victoria since her journey began, please see below for ways to donate.

Adopt A Pig provides families with coping kits which are given to every family at AI DuPont Hospital for Children within one week of their child’s cancer diagnosis. (Victoria continues to use a lot of the different items that were in the coping kit.)

The B+ Foundation is about Kids Helping Kids Fight Cancer — raising money through dance marathons, 5Ks, T-shirt sales and more, to provide financial and emotional support to families of children with cancer nationwide. The B+ Foundation also funds critical, cutting-edge childhood cancer research.

The Marsh family has been a major part of the Down Syndrome Association of Delaware since Victoria was born. This organization aims to be a supportive resource, advocating for the acceptance and understanding that allows individuals with Down syndrome to achieve the same level of access and opportunity as their peers.
