I’m really sad to be telling you this but my inspirational, hero of a big brother Duncan passed away on the 23rd of August 2015.
As most of you know I have always been very close to Duncan and since his cancer diagnosis last year he not only made sure that he helped our family come to terms with his illness, he also helped me through getting my ileostomy and through my surgery for the sepsis after the initial surgery.
Through everything Duncan had to face, he did it willingly to get to spend as much time as possible with us, however, due to his life being cut tragically short, he never got to make his dream of having his own fashion line made a reality. So as of now I am determined to get funding to make the clothing line for CrohnieClothing with 10 key pieces for each gender with each having customisation options to hide/make things more comfortable for those with scars/burns/colostomy bags or any other things people will struggle to find fashionable clothing which is also functionable for them.
In Duncan’s memory I would also like to call the menswear section after his planned name for his clothing line which is “Lucky Coin” and will be Lucky Coin for CrohnieClothing. Money from the profits of which will go in Duncan’s name to a fund which will help those in need of an endoscopy or worried about their symptoms which could in fact be Oesophageal cancer which was what tragically took Duncan’s life. With this disease early diagnosis is crucial and we want to make sure no one else is in our families situation in the future.
