Thank you for checking out my Online Store and for taking the time to learn a little more about me! My name is Dave Dowsett. I was diagnosed with Sjogren’s Syndrome in 2013 it took 4 doctors and almost 8 years to get that diagnoses. My life has changed slowly over the next 8 years, I worked fulltime as a Sales Rep as well I was a Rep soccer coach, a Rep football coach now I’m unable to work or coach.
I have Sjogren’s Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Fatigue, Spinal Stenosis, Sensory Ataxia, Small Fiber Neuropathy, Hypertension, Restless Leg Syndrome, Sleep Apnea, Enlarged Liver, GERD, Multiple Ischemic Microangiopathic changes on brain, Spinal Stenosis, both Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid arthritis and Chronic headaches. I also have a Right Ankle Rupture of the ATFL, update my ankle needs surgery to repair the damage, 12 Concussions and both knees need to be replaced. Update I just found out that a have a torn ligament in my right shoulder from one of my many falls.
I have been on CPP Disability for over a year and it does not pay the bills. So I had to find a way to earn extra income, but the fact that I sleep anywhere from 12-14 hours a day because of fatigue, it doesn’t offer a lot of choices.
Now to tell you how NEVER GIVE UP came to be. One night I was talking to a good friend, and I opened up to him about my situation (which I hadn’t told to many people). So we put are heads together and came up with selling T-Shirts and More…. Now it as much a passion project (bring more awareness) as it is a business.
Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy my shop!
