We are women ourselves. Sisters actually. And we rule (at least we’d like to think so).
Just kidding. Well, not really. You do. But girls drool too…so we’re even.
KIDS ARE COOL
And no, you’re not shopping for small children – only their clothing.
BE THE FUEL
We give our happy shirts and other happy things to kids with cancer. Help us!

...all about how
our lives got flipped-turned upside down
and we'd like to take a minute

we'll tell you how we became the owners of a business called Catch Some Air
(Fresh Prince anyone?)
kristine is diagnosed with Leukemia
Super lame. She was two days away from death. Low energy. Couldn't do much.
bri hangs out in hospitals with her
Two goals: make sure Kristine doesn't die, and make the process more fun.

These last few days have brought something new. It’s a very strange thing to go from smiling and laughing as much as we can…to trying not to at all. Kristine’s mouth/throat is so full of sores from the chemo that she can’t eat, can barely drink, and it hurts to open her mouth, talk, laugh,[…]
As 2015 comes to a close, I can’t help but reflect on the last year. It has definitely been one of the craziest yet. One of the hardest years, but still a good year. I’ve learned so much from walking through this cancer treatment process with my sister, Kristine, which will stick with me for[…]
In the hospital, we have lots of time. Perfect for dreaming. A lot. We started small, thinking of just giving away some happy shirts to kids at our hospital (mission accomplished!). Then another small dream: a goal of giving happy shirts away to all pediatric cancer patients in the US (currently working on this). But[…]
Disclaimer #1: This is SUPER long and you do not have to read it all. Just search for your name (if it’s spelled right – if not…we’re sorry). Purple names are family, blue names are medical family.

She was totally fine her whole 20 years of life until she had a repeated fever/fatigue for about a month, but powered through it because she figured it was nothing serious. Then her aspiring nurse roommate convinced her[…]
