The TLC Project Baby T-Shirt
The TLC Project is 110% devoted to help those that are Chronically Ill and/or in chronically pain. We started by helping and raising awareness for Interstitial Cystitis. "Interstitial cystitis, or bladder pain syndrome (also IC/BPS), is a chronic condition and diagnosis of exclusion of unknown cause characterized by bladder pain. It may be associated with urinary urgency, urinary frequency, waking at night to urinate (nocturia), and sterile urine cultures. Those with interstitial cystitis may have symptoms that overlap with other urinary bladder disorders such as: urinary tract infection (UTI), overactive bladder, urethritis, urethral syndrome, and prostatitis IC/BPS can result[quantify] in a quality of life comparable to that of a patient with rheumatoid arthritis, chronic cancer pain, or a patient on kidney dialysis." (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interstitial_Cystitis). We help with the cost of medication and doctor visits or co-pays (whatever the need is). child care (especially after surgery) when patients are unable to care for their own kids and have no other help, provide gift cards for gas (some patient drive over 6 hours to see their doctors), food or any other basic needs patients have, provide resources and support in applying for SSI/SSD, Applications to have Medication cost covered and Social Services, and last, but sometimes most important, send Aware Bears handmade lovingly by Sher Marchman-Day or DayDreams (http://daydreemz.net/), cards or small trinkets to brig ten the days of those most in need.
