Teen helps in local's fight against cancer

By Suzannah Solomon Wilson

A young Tallassee entrepreneur is doing his part to help SOAR, Inc. founder Andrus Love by designing a tee shirt that offers a visible support for Andrus and his family.

Andrus was diagnosed with lymphoblastic lymphoma leukemia last fall and had a bone marrow transplant in early May. Since his diagnosis, family and friends have been working hard to help ease the financial burden.


Amari Parker, who is 14 years old and a rising freshman at Tallassee High School, has a tee shirt design business called Wow Faith Store. His designs are all about faith—“Faithful,” “Rooted in Christ,” and “Sacrifice” are just a few of his favorite Christian statements.

Amari is now expanding his line to include a custom-designed t shirt for Andrus. Volunteers are taking orders for the shirts, which are $20 each, and a portion of the sales will be given to the Love family.


Sizes for the shirts include youth extra small through extra large and adult small through 3X.

Jennifer Jarvis and Suzannah Solomon Wilson will be taking orders for the shirts.  For cash orders, you can stop by Suzannah’s Photography studio.  If you would like to pay virtually, you can use PayPal (, Venmo (@Jennifer-Jarvis-77) or CashApp ($jenjarvis77). 

The deadline to order is June 3 and the processing time takes three weeks.

You can find Amari’s tee shirt design business on Facebook.
