Caley Camarillo was a friend to Purple Pixies who lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis in June of 2014. We have been working closely with the Camarillo family as they launch their charity "Breather For Caley, with a mission to grant second wishes to chronically ill children. Purple Pixies has agreed to donate 15% from every shirt sold to help grant wishes. Below is from the Breathe for Caley Website. You can read more about their mission and donate directly here
"one wish is not enough"
Our daughter Caley, who bravely battled cystic fibrosis since the age of 4 weeks earned her wings and a seat in heaven June 13, 2014, at the age of 12. More than 12 years were spent battling this disease and likely at least 6 years had been spent on machines, taking meds, admitted into the hospital for treatment or surgeries/procedures. That's half of her life she missed out on. Caley received a make-a-wish when she was 4 but her experience was short lived as she became very ill on her trip. She was later granted a trip back to Disneyland by our local Lion's Club (San Martin). Not everyone is so lucky......granting a second wish to chronically ill children in her name will keep her name alive. You may have heard of Caley as the fan who received a video message from Miley Cyrus just before she had passed. We want to do something great with this recognition and pay it forward.
