I would like you all to please take a minute to get comfortable and envision this very unique story that I would like to share with you. Put your phones down, shut the tv off, and dedicate some uninterrupted time to reading about the struggles of a very strong and inspiring man by the name of Jason Pinchoff:
I’ve spoken to Jason on more than one occasion and I’m really enjoying getting to know him. Every time I speak with him I learn something new and I’m really blown away by the amount of strength and courage he has endured since he was just a baby. This is where I want you to really focus and put yourself in someone else’s shoes for a bit.
Imagine yourself having double open heart surgery by the time you reach age 3. Then you reach 11 years old and your mother is diagnosed with breast cancer, and begins her long and hard battle with the disease, thankfully beating it and going into remission…for a while. Then at age 14 the unthinkable happens. Your dad and sister have lost their lives in a car accident. As you continue to grieve such a horrible loss your mom’s cancer returns. She fights the disease again for almost four very long years, and by age 18 you’re the only one left after she loses the battle and passes away. By age 29 you’re given six months to live because your organs have been shutting down. Randomly. No one knows why or can give you any type of helpful information on how to improve your health. You’re now left to figure that out on your own, aside from doing the best you can to support yourself financially.
My question for you is: how would you react? Would all of these tragic losses and health issues change your perspective of life? Would you become bitter? Would you walk around with a defeated attitude?
Jason Pinchoff has taken these negative experiences and turned them into positive lessons. He’s turned his losses into an opportunity to help and motivate others by launching “The Linda B. Pinchoff Foundation” back in 2009 in honor of his mother to help mentor individuals, families and their loved ones dealing with cancer. Jason has visited children’s hospitals and spent time with kids fighting their own battles with cancer. He also launched his high end urban fashion line by the name of A PINCH Life in 2013. With every snapback hat purchased, one will be donated to the foundation. Those hats are then given to the children on kids days. (LBPF #oneforone program)
With that being said, I truly admire Jason’s ability to overcome such heartbreaking obstacles and use them as an opportunity to give back. I too have suffered the loss of my very own mother to cancer in 2007, so his story hits very close to home for me. I am way too familiar with how family members are affected by this terrible and emotionally draining disease. I cannot imagine losing my other family members to a car accident as well, especially being so young. I can say with confidence that Jason is one of the strongest people I know.
I wanted to show my support for Jason and feature an accessory from his A PINCH LIFE line.
This is the “SNOW” black knit beanie and it’s so soft! Usually winter knit hats like this make my forehead and hairline itch like crazy but I noticed this one doesn’t. I can wear it all day and feel nothing but comfort. In my opinion, this fashion line is more of a couture line because of the quality it posses. Winter temperatures are just around the corner so it’s the perfect time to pick one up and give back!
If you prefer baseball cap styles instead there are plenty to choose from. My favorite is the Duh Kamo (Ltd Edition). If you love army print, this is the one for you. Check out the “I Don’t Do Ugly” line of shirts and tanks. These represent Jason’s message to never give up and allow the ugly of any situation to affect you. “You have to keep on going.”- Jason Pinchoff.
Let’s show our support and spread the word about Jason and his amazing cause. Purchase a A PINCH LIFE fashion line and help families and loved ones dealing with cancer, or those who have suffered losses due to the disease. I would like to give Jason a huge shout-out for giving me the opportunity to share his story with my readers. Please stay the strong willed person that you are, and continue to dedicate your life to motivating others. Wishing Jason and all of you so much success, great health, and a lifetime of happiness!
