“Loving Tabs” Healing T-Shirts

“Loving Tabs” are $30 each and only available at a handful of pediatric hematology/oncology centers in San Diego and Orange Counties, as well as UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital in San Francisco.

ENF’s “Loving Tabs” are modern t-shirts designed with snaps on the shoulder and sleeve to facilitate access to medication for children with cancer. The idea for the shirts came from our Patient Services Director, Luz Quiroga, when her son, Martin, was going through chemotherapy and a transplant. The patent-pending medical garments provide a sense of normalcy so children don’t have to take off or lift a shirt to receive treatment.

Our goal is to get these t-shirts into children’s hospitals throughout the U.S., but we need your help.

Thank you to current “Loving Tabs” sponsors The Corrao Group and San Diego Padres! And a special thanks to Custom Logos for their partnership in helping us to create the shirt for our patients.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation conducted a two year study in partnership with ENF to test the usefulness and satisfaction of the Shirt – results were analyzed by gap intelligence. Click HERE to review the study.
LEAD San Diego conducted a professional business marketing plan.
