Get your Claire’s Place Foundation TShirts here!

June 11, 2014

We are so excited to offer our very first Claire’s Place Foundation Tshirt.  We had a blast creating the design with our amazing NorthStar Moving Company  Marketing Team.  Thank Ellie_1you all so much for your hard work and dedication!

Here at Claire’s Place Foundation, we are committed to raising awareness about cystic fibrosis and bringing support, hope and courage to those families living with it every day.

Claire says “CLAIRITY”…the meaning behind this for me is shining a light on Cystic Fibrosis, raising awareness!  And, of course the play on spelling to add “AIR” which is what we people living with CF need a little more of! So, that’s on the front of the shirt, then on the back we have several words that describe what our mission is all about:  breathe, courage, cystic fibrosis, #cf, hope and support. And then, of course our name and website at the bottom so if anyone needs help, they know how to find us!

Haha!  That’s my adorable little sister, Ellie, modeling our shirts for us 🙂

We hope you love them as much as we do and feel proud wearing them knowing that by purchasing one (or more) you are helping us support families living with cystic fibrosis!

Chynna and Claire’s book received several wonderful reviews on Amazon. If you or someone you love is living with cystic fibrosis or any chronic illness, be sure to order your copy today!photo(57)

“Anything in life is what you make of it, so no matter what comes your way, cherish it and make something amazing from it,” young Claire Wineland writes in her biography, “Every Breath I Take – Surviving and Thriving with Cystic Fibrosis.”

This seventy-four page paperback book has a photograph of the smiling, vivacious and youthful author with a nasal cannula on the front cover. The book is about the realities, physical discomforts and roller coaster emotions of the congenital disease, Cystic Fibrosis, written from a teenage girl’s perspective. It is ideal for the young patient or parents with children who have the debilitating disease or any family or friend who knows or wants to learn more about it. At the end of the book, there is information about the author’s Claire’s Place Foundation, Inc., which has an outreach program that includes travel and hospital funding assistance along with other websites of interest.

This book is inspiring and touching and profiles the lives of young people all over the world trying to create positive change from saving the rainforests in Costa Rica to helping raise money for the homeless by organizing nationwide campouts!
