What comes to mind when I see my Mum's uniform shirt is strength. My Mum was full of it. Though a single mother of two, starting at a very young age, nothing kept her down…I saved this item because I wasn't really ready to let go of it until now. Giving it away now to a good cause where the world has the opportunity to see my Mum's strength through a piece of her clothing means the world to me. It is really hard living without my Mum. She was my #1 fan. She was my best friend and my world.
