Support Team Victoria!

To help celebrate September's Childhood Cancer Awareness month and due to high demand Team Victoria will be going in for a fourth run on the “Let’s Kill the Cancer” shirts. Over 1,400 t-shirts have been purchased so far. As fall approaches it only seems right to add a sweatshirt to the line. Team Victoria has chosen the high quality “Comfort Casuals” sweatshirt in Lagoon blue (available in sizes S-3XL) and will be selling them for only $25 (shipping included). Sweatshirts are just available in adult sizes so far, if you are interested in a youth size then please email info@dsadelaware.org.

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 14 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. T-shirts are available in both youth and adult sizes.

Order Deadline September 20th. 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.
