Wendy Syndrome, Tie Dye!

Many of you may be wondering why I chose tie dye for the Walking for Wendy shirts. Most disorders have colors to represent their awareness. Down Syndrome is blue and yellow. Cerebral Palsy, Mental Health, and Mitochondrial Disease are green. TB and Heart Disease are red. Leukemia and Lymphoma are orange. Chron's, Reye's, and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome are blue. Purple is for Alzheimer's, Fibromylagia, and Sjogren's Syndrome. White, Scoliosis and Osteoporosis. The list goes on and on. However, there is no color for an unbalanced translocation between chromosome 7 and 10, that does even have a name. So we are calling her unique, rare disorder Wendy Syndrome and we are giving it tie dye as an awareness color. Tie dye was chosen because Wendy has an odd little mix of problems so why not do a mix of colors that blur together. Besides, Wendy Lee looks adorable in tie dye!

If you want to see the shirts, please looks at my Walking for Wendy page on Facebook. Walking For Wendy Facebook Page If you want to order a shirt, please mail me a check (made out to Jamie McLanahan) or cash along with a paper with your name, size and how many you want. The money must be here by September 1, that's when I'm placing the order.
