Gotta Kill It To Heal It
Kill The Cancer.....Heal it once and for all!

Gotta Kill It To Heal It was born from the idea of its parent company, Gotta Kill It To Grill It. Its primary inspiration and design was to bring attention, awareness, support, and contribution to the ongoing search and battle for a cure to breast cancer. We believe this can only be effected through the dedicated commitment and support of that goal. Gotta Kill It To Heal It, is about killing cancer, NOT animals. We have used and transformed the sea life found in the waters surrounding North America, and the geography surrounding our local beaches in North Carolina. Our desire is to capture the beauty and majesty of each creature in print, to honor the memory of those that have lost their lives fighting this disease, and to each and every person who wages that battle today and everyday.

The design artwork presented to you in this very special line, was envisioned and developed by the observance of these animals in their natural habitat through the eyes and overall respect given them by a man who has dedicated more than half of his life to the seas that touch the state of North Carolina. That vision has been beautifully mastered by a brilliant artist that saw the significance in each one. We hope to bring to you, now and in the future, a unique and special collection that will be ever changing, with a new and fresh presentation in casual apparel that can be worn with pride by all that share in this fight. Please watch for new designs, they will be added frequently.

Finally, we have committed our support to this cause by aligning ourselves with an outstanding foundation that is known around the world. This foundation was chosen by the founders and creators of Heal It, because of the admiration as a fan of college athletics, specifically North Carolina State University, and the passion of Coach Kay Yow. We were deeply impressed by her faith, her fight, her legacy, her love of basketball and her deep love for her home state of North Carolina.

Our goal is to support the Kay Yow Cancer Fund and Coach Yow's vision and mission. We hope to honor her memory and her fight. Help us kill the cancer......and heal it once and for all.


Coach Yow was first diagnosed with breast cancer in 1987 before passing away on January 24, 2009. Coach Yow did not lose her battle with breast cancer. She simply turned the battle over to each of us.

The Kay Yow Cancer Fund was founded on December 3, 2007. The Kay Yow Cancer Fund is a 501 (c)(3) charitable organization committed to being a part of finding an answer in the fight against women’s cancers through raising money for scientific research and related projects, assisting the underserved and unifying people for a common cause.
