100% of our funds raised goes directly towards making the days a little brighter for childhood cancer patients, their families and caregivers. Some examples of where the money goes include:

Buy a pair, give a pair
• Buy a pair of OMT16 socks, give a pair of fuzzy, comfy socks to a pediatric oncology patient.
• You will also have the chance to personalize a card to go with the socks to the patient.
• You and the patient are connected forever by…socks

Wear a pair, give a pair
• As an athlete competing, you always have to wear socks!
• You wear a pair of OMT16 socks and are able to give a pair of fuzzy, comfy socks to a pediatric oncology patient.
• You will also have the chance to personalize a card to go with the socks to the patient.
• You and the patient are connected forever by…socks

Project CARE (Cancer Aid for Resiliency and Empowerment) is designed to help members of my community who are affected by cancer by giving them care packages made with love. This program was created by Ellie Sommers in memory of her father, Tom Sommers, who passed away on May 12, 2015, a mere nine months after his initial diagnosis of Pancreatic cancer.

Care packages include items such as snacks, healthy beverages, inspirational signs, journals, and prayer books, trinkets, small games, books, movies, gift cards to local restaurants, and more.

“My six foot six foot, athletic, former college basketball player dad was dying before my eyes, proving that time is short. No one knows how long they have to live, so it became all the more important to make the most of the time my mom, two brothers, sister, and I all had left together.”

“Cancer affects healthy people who think they have their whole lives ahead of them. This terrible disease takes a great emotional toll on both the patients and their families, and I want to use Project CARE to reach out to those who are hurting.”

“I am choosing to respond to devastation in my own life with courage; I am going to use my courage to help others fight the good fight. If I can improve someone’s day and bring a smile to their face with Project CARE, even if just for an instant, it will be worth it.”

It’s a big deal when a child wins their battle against cancer, OMT16 provides gift cards to families to celebrate the victory.

OMT16 partners with local sports teams to provide tickets to sporting events to children and their families during their battle with cancer. Maintaining some sense of normalcy during their fight is critical to their success, attending sporting events does just that.
