The first GFL shirts that were made were worn by the people who were closest to my daughter Alexa Faith 16, on the day we had her memorial. I wanted everyone who was there to see the shirts and know that this is how I felt to put a positive message out, we were Grateful for Alexa’s life, grateful for the 16 years we had with her and in this time of tremendous loss and it felt unifying and healing and it just felt right. Alexa was born with a rare metabolic disorder called Propionic Acidemia, her life was anything but easy, it was a struggle but you would never know it, she lived with a love of life and a big huge smile on her face and made everyone around her happy. Kids with special needs get life, it’s not complicated be happy and love life and be grateful for life. We want to go forward and help people to realize that you need to go forward and have appreciation for everyday just reading our message on our clothing GFL Grateful For Life and that’s why we as Alexa’s family started this company.
