We are proud to be able to offer the Desert Okie Strong t-shirts that we wore to support Chad Trout during his year long fight with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. Chad loved these shirts that his Aunt Sharon Bledsoe Foster had designed for him, and many people have asked about purchasing them after seeing the family wearing them. Thanks goes to Sharon Bledsoe Foster, Kim Scholwinski of Flip Flop Bling for generously donating the design, Lori Brown for putting together the purchase links and assisting with shipping, and my sister-in-law Wanda Warf of Maverick Ink for assisting us with a limited press.

Here is the shirt:



We will be running a pre-order from June 9, 2018 through June 24, 2018. The shirts will be pressed and shipped out during the two weeks following. Our goal is to get the shirts delivered in time to be worn at Chad’s Celebration of Life on July 5th (public celebration) and 7th (private celebration).

We are able to offer three styles and the cost will be $20 including shipping. 2X will be $3 more.

We are so thankful for all the support for Chad and his family. All profit from these shirts will go into the Desert Okie Strong for Chad Trout fund that the family is using for costs related to Chad’s final arrangements.
With love,
