Wrapped in Strength Project
MISSION: Wrapped in Strength Project creates and distributes fun cozy hooded towels to kids fighting cancer in order to bring smiles to their faces and warmth to their hearts.
This project began with one sewing machine, a few towels, funding from family and friends and a desire to share Derick's way of life to always push harder, live bigger, be stronger, and to comfort those in need.
"I made Derick two fun hooded bath towels a year before his cancer diagnosis. He loved to put the hood on, put his hands in the handles, and wrap himself in a cozy cocoon. After diagnosis at the age of 6, his bear and dinosaur towels became very special to him. My little homemade creation always put a smile to his face, but most importantly, it brought comfort, warmth, and familiarity to his heart. Here at the Wrapped in Strength Project we have vowed to continue Derick’s fight against cancer. Being a cancer fighting hero is very hard work, and we want children that are currently fighting to have the comfort of one of these special hooded towels, in hopes of bringing a smile to their faces and giving them courage to be brave.
