my dad died of cancer just a few weeks ago, climbing and the people involved in it have really kepy me afloat through diffilcut times... my dad was an amazing man and a wonderful friend..
i think this idea is great ..i've bought a few of the t shirts.. like the colours too :o) and like how it says DAD when you look in the mirror :o) please let us all know if there are any climbing or actvity type events we could get involved in to help raise more money
I too think this is a great idea and am inspired by the website. I'll definitely be buying t shirts. Anyone know if the sizes are roomy or not as I tend to fall between sizes?
Great, thanks for the response. Unfortunately the website doesn't seem to be working for me when I try to place an order. I'll keep checking and hopefully it will be ok soon.
thumbs up for this, definitely need to raise awareness for this horrid disease, my well wishes go out to you John Ellison and you have my support.
Has the shop been launched yet? I signed up to get informed when it was and haven't received anything, and the Shop link just gives me a connect error.
I hope it gets sorted soon to raise maximum money for this great cause.
Ordered one this morning then went to order one for the wee wife a wee while ago but can't seem to get onto the site.
Excellent money raising venture and for a very worthwhile cause. Hope you get a big wad of dosh!
NB The Works are nearly out of stock but will get a delivery on Monday
That said, I've bought a T-shirt anyway as I think it's a great cause but probably won't be wearing it down the pub.
Good interview Nat.
John is a complete legend, inspiring me and many others over the last year with his outlook and attitude to his situation. Can't wait to get my hands on a CAC t-shirt or two.
Hope to see you soon John.
Hopefully it's just the volume of traffic but I would like to support the cause by buying a couple of T shirts but get an error when clicking on the shop tag. am I the only one getting this error?
Good luck with this John.
T shirt ordered and will be worn down the wall
T-shirt bought - such an inspiring story, thank you John!
For me to access the website I had to disable a program I use called Peer Guardian as it was blocking the site- it does do this every now and then on some web pages for no apparent reason.
So if you're using anything similar (anti-virus etc) that may be the problem...
If I'm around, I'll be there. I'll let you know closer to the date.
Major climbing media in Poland also spreading the word:
All the best John!
"The route names reflect the black and brave humour of the principal first ascensionist, who made the ascents between bouts of punishing chemotherapy." (Sadly, the treatment was unsuccessful.)
