Flight 4 the Cure is a line of products that gives back in more ways than one. "Not only are 10% of the proceeds donated back to the cancer research efforts of University Hospitals and the Cleveland Clinic, but each product also resembles a story, a fight, a roller coaster ride, a journey. We are working to help find the cure but we are also supporting those we are currently suffering from that little C."
