Long Island, NY, United States, 2005/12/08 - Contemplating what you should give a loved-one or close friend, suffering from a chronic illness this holiday season?.
Offering apparel and merchandise with a twist, the ButYouDontLookSick.com online store will bring a smile to any patient suffering from Lupus, Cystic Fibrosis, or Arthritis, just to name a few.
The ButYouDontLookSick.com online store is yet another creation from Lupus patient, Christine Miserandino of ‘The Spoon Theory’ fame, who first created the Tee's for herself and friends. “I started receiving requests for many illnesses on the shirts... and even other quotes like "sick and tired of being sick and tired" etc. I began adding new designs and quotes every week.” The shirts come in an array of styles from tank tops to baby-doll tees, so you’ll find a tee-shirt, fit for every age range. Despite the fact that Miserandino suffers from Lupus, a chronic autoimmune disease, which causes inflammation of the joints and organ damage, she would always get stares when she used her handicapped parking pass. “I don't fit the mold that people expect when they see someone with a disability,” stated Miserandino.
The slogans were created to make patients, as well as onlookers, laugh, think or even ask questions. “Lets face it---there’s no better way to say it…sometimes things just suck,” says Miserandino. With prices starting at $2.50, you’ll find a quality gift with just the right expression.
