'Piece of Mind' T-shirts on Sale
A student whose father died of brain cancer has released a range of t-shirts inspired by his experience to raise the profile of the illness.
Fixer Bradley Sowter (19) designed his ‘Piece of Mind’ t-shirts with the help of a team of illustrators at Illustrated People, with an aim to create something unique, fashionable, and meaningful.
Bradley was only two-years-old when his father died of brain cancer.
He explains: ‘I was too young to understand fully what happened to my dad. But as I grew up, I realised that not many other people really understand brain cancer either.’
Unlike many other forms of cancer, there are no ways to self-diagnose or check for signs of brain cancer. This means symptoms often go unnoticed.
But Bradley, from Gillingham, Kent, hopes his campaign can make people aware of what to look out for.
‘I am so pleased at how the t-shirts have turned out – it feels amazing and quite surreal to see them on sale,’ he says.
‘These t-shirts are here to just remind people that brain cancer does exist, and to encourage early diagnosis of the condition. I hope they will make a difference.’
