Help my friend Kaylin make her comic shirts and scarves possible on kickstarter!

My friend Kaylin was diagnosed with Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare cancer at the age of 23.  
Ever since then she has been battling against it with her creative and stong spirit.

Including making her entire senior collection with 5 looks all by hand!!! (including the accessories!!) see below for some pics

Being the trend setting fashionable lady that she is, Kaylin has continuously noticed that her fellow stylish/trendy/fuck it punk rock 20 somethings, who want to question the typical "cancer culture"  available to them for the moment, needed to be heard.

One of many experiences that inspired Kaylin to create her comics:

"I thought of the advice I'd been giving by well meaning nurses and therapists: visualize the cancer within you, imagine it dying shriveling.  Creative visualization, they called it.  I felt it was all I had left-all I was able to do proactively to save my life.  And so I imagined.  I thought Pac-man navigating the maze of my body and gobbling up dancing tumor cells."

So she teamed with her comic illustrator friend,  Jon, went down to their screen printing basement, and created  bright and vivid comics, scarves, and t-shirts!!!

Only 22 more days to go until her kickstarter ends!!!
So help Kaylin make this happen!!

Your friend is really awesome and inspiring! I can't even imagine what it would be like. I'd definitely like to support her work. I'll definitely tell my friends about it, too.
