I received a request from Michelle Siwy of Siwy Denim to ask Denimology readers if they could help out a friend of hers who has been diagnosed colon cancer at the age of 31. In Michelle’s words “It just didn’t make sense that such a young, vibrant woman in her prime would be facing the biggest challenge of her life, seemingly out of the blue. She has been going through chemotherapy since June. With this unexpected diagnosis, come treatments, alternative therapies, special diets and holistic approaches to healing that are extremely costly.”

Siwy Denim would like to ask for your help in supporting her battle. It will relieve an enormous amount of stress on her family and self, so she can simply focus on getting healthy! You can donate as little or as much as you you like and for every $100 or more of your donation, we will offer you a pair of jeans. Click here for more information on how to make a donation.
