My name is Mac Bartine, and my wife April passed away 3 weeks ago from a rare and very aggressive form of breast cancer. She was 35.
The blog I wrote about her fight is at http://www.bartine.com. Before you join this contest, please take a look at the blog briefly - just to get a feeling for who she was. I hope that this will help to inspire your design submission, and that you'll enjoy getting to know her just a little bit.
I was - so she told me - a good husband before April was diagnosed, and I totally dedicated myself to giving her the best possible life and love I could give her after her diagnosis.
I plan to continue focusing my passion for April by raising money for cancer-focused and other charities, and for individuals who need money to get through their own struggles with cancer. Toward that end, I'm holding this contest for creating a great design that I can use for t-shirts that people will love for its design, and be proud to wear in her memory to fund raisers such as the Susan B Komen Race for the Cure.
