RareiTees for a Cure is a clothing brand with a unique mission to bring awareness to rare diseases, specifically Pitt Hopkins Syndrome. Our inspiration is derived from the founder's daughter, Alexandra, one of 1500+ in the world living with Pitt Hopkins Syndrome. Your purchase helps fund a cure for this rare disease and brings hope to so many. All proceeds benefit the Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation.

How it began

Nicole Anderson, the mother of Alexandra and the founder of RareiTees for a Cure, designed the very first shirt when her daughter's website, Alexandra's Pitt Crew, went live informing her community of her recent diagnosis of Pitt Hopkins Syndrome. What began as one shirt, has now evolved into something much more meaningful and purposeful.

For over a decade, Anderson’s career at the Nation's #1 Most Innovative Higher Education Institution has provided her with experience in nonprofit leadership and management, event planning, donor engagement and marketing and communications. She enjoys spending time with her husband and three-year old daughter, who is the cornerstone of the RareiTees brand and her daily dose of inspiration. Anderson combines her passion to serve, along with advocating for those that are developmentally disabled, by being involved in pediatric disease advocacy groups. As such, she currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Pitt Hopkins Research Foundation, an organization dedicated to finding a cure for Pitt Hopkins Syndrome. In Nov. 2017, City of Phoenix Mayor Stanton appointed Anderson to the Mayor’s Commission on Disability Issues. She is honored to make an impact on local issues concerning those living with special needs. In July 2018, she was selected to serve her local community as a Member of the Board of Directors for United Cerebral Palsy of Central Arizona. Anderson believes her experience, education and dedication has equipped her with the essential skills needed to be a change-agent for her daughter and the greater rare disease community.
