In the summer of 2009, a very close, lifelong friend, Troy, was diagnosed with cancer. Although his prognosis was not good, those of us who loved him hoped for a miracle. After an extensive surgery and chemotherapy, his chances seemed to be improving. One night on the phone when talking about a recent MRI, he said he hoped that the test would show that he was unremarkable. After he explained what that meant, we laughed at the irony and thought it would be fun to celebrate beating cancer with a shirt that said “I am unremarkable!”
Troy fought hard against cancer, always striving for unremarkable. On July 13, 2011, he lost his fight, just seven days short of his 37th birthday. In August 2011, we started The unRemarkable Project in honor of Troy.
Our purpose is to bring a message of hope, love and even humor to those with cancer and to support causes that work to improve the quality of life for cancer patients and cancer survivors.
The unRemarkable Project was created to be a joint effort to make a real difference in fighting cancer. The Project is committed to using half of its net income from the sales of unRemarkable™ products to support cancer-related causes. The income part is where you come in. We make the clothing and apparel, you buy something completely unRemarkable, and together we make a difference.
