Everyone at Xile Clothing was extremely saddened with news last September that long-time friends of the business Jim and Lisa Armstrong's 19 year old son Cameron had been diagnosed with advanced stage bowel cancer. This news was heart breaking as during the same period Cameron's younger sister Ellie, 14, had been diagnosed with another rare form of Cancer stemming from a small benign tumour she had from birth. Ellie’s treatment did not work and she sadly passed away in January 2015.
Cameron’s disease is usually associated with people in their fifties and over and extremely rare for a more than healthy young man. Up until last year Cameron had shown no signs of ill health. He was an extremely fit teenage boy who was a pro youth footballer for Falkirk FC, EOSFL with Spartans and lately Whitehill Welfare.
Cameron received treatment immediately having a substantial part of his bowel removed due to the damage from the tumour, but unfortunately the cancer was found to have spread into his liver. After several forms of Chemotherapy the treatment was found not to be helping and had now spread to his lungs. With no further treatment that can help, Cameron is now fulfilling his wishes with his family and beautiful girlfriend.
With the help of Jim, Lisa and Cameron we have commissioned a t-shirt featuring the Armstrong Family Coat of Arms “Invictus Maneo” to raise funds for Cameron. Available in all Xile stores and online with all profits going to Cameron, this T-shirt will be a lasting legacy for Ellie and Cameron and we want people to wear the T-shirt to raise awareness and as much money as possible via Cameron's Just Giving page...
Cameron has also decided to donate a portion of the funds to CCLASP, a local charity in Edinburgh who have helped Cameron's family throughout the last year and provided so much support.
Jim, Lisa and Cameron would also like to thank everyone who has taken time out to read their story and donate or buy a t-shirt.

The world is officially Yeezy mad. Of all the Kanye West merchandise available this has surely got to be the best. The air from a Kanye gig. If you weren't lucky enough to be there and breathe some of this historical moment in then do not fear one on the ball fan was smart enough to bag some of it up and put it on e-bay. Keep it in a glass box or burst it open and breathe in some greatness... All day, or probably just once. Best banter ever?, smartest man alive?, soon to be pretty rich man?. We'll have to wait and see if the winning bidder pays up. I'm taking some air tight bags to the next gig.
Feel the need to bid get on e-bay now...
