Our founder is a two-time leukemia survivor. As a young man, he found the need to create a supportive community for leukemia fighters, survivors, and their families. By recognizing the strength of social media, He combined the color used traditionally to represent the fight against leukemia with the “hashtag” to create the organization, #IWEARORANGE and raise awareness with these innovative platforms.
Our mission is to raise awareness for leukemia, by connecting fighters and supporters through social media platforms and philanthropic events.
#IWEARORANGE creates an interactive community worldwide through social media by utilizing the #IWEARORANGE hashtag where all individuals affected by leukemia can connect and support one another through raising awareness and sharing their stories.
#IWEARORANGE hosts philanthropic events such as blood drives, bone marrow registry drives, and toy drives to make a difference for those fighting by assisting them with the proper care and treatment they need.
Any funds donated to #IWEARORANGE will support the organization’s mission and sponsor further research studies.
