FOUNDER’S STORY
“Momma, I don’t want to try on that ugly old dress!” is what the young girl said to her mother on one of their regular after school trips to the local thrift store. As a child, Meredith was always upset that she never had the same trendy clothes as her friends.
Everything she wore was either made on her mom’s sewing machine or came from second hand stores. As an adult, Meredith would give anything to have a completely custom made wardrobe!
Mary’s passion for everything vintage, from clothes and handbags to furniture and china were directly passed on to her daughter. Not only was Mary one of the best dressed women in town, she was also an accomplished pianist and sometimes serenaded the family dogs with her harmonica. Music, fashion, art, and vintage, this is the legacy of one woman to her daughter. In the years that have passed since those memorable thrift store/flea market trips with her mother, Meredith realized that those were some of the most precious moments of her life.
A legacy and memories are all that are left behind when cancer takes a mother from
her child. Years of misdiagnosis led to months of bedridden suffering before Mary’s pain was finally relieved when she passed away just after Christmas in 1996. Cancer research has come a long way in thirteen years. However, with not cure to date, there is still much work to be done.
I would like to honor my mother by using her many attributes as an inspiration to launch Fashion Fights Cancer. This organization is a celebration of her life; bringing about awareness of colon and ovarian cancer and how if affects not only those suffering from the disease, but also the family and friends who stand in the wake of this dreadful disease. This event showcases designers, artists and musicians from around the world who are doing their part in the fight against cancer. All proceeds from Fashion Fights Cancer are donated to individuals and organizations in the tireless fight against cancer. Please join me in this cause and celebrate the lives of cancer patients past and present!
-Hope MeredithHam
