So as some of you may know, I tweet like a fiend (1,197 tweets... I started rethinking my my life choices around tweet 800).
Anyway, while I was getting my tweet on one day, I came across the Twitter account of Amy Tippins (@RockScarLove). Amy is the owner of RockScarLove––A clothing company that develops apparel with catchy sayings related to post surgery scars.
A transplant recipient herself, Amy set out to develop a company (and shirts) that "focus on helping transplant patients embrace their new, incredibly wonderful journey of a life."
Long story short, I am posting this blog for a handful of reasons:
- It's a wonderful idea.
- I think she has something that everyone would like.
- She's someone you should know.
