Buckets reflect Aaron’s love for basketball by bringing the game to your feet - literally. The design features a ball swishing through a net, but these socks are good for playing in, too.
They’re knit from polyester, and mesh paneling and moisture wicking make them perfect for wearing on the court (or just around town).

"This can happen to anyone so live your life right. For different people that means different things. For me, it means staying close to my faith."
Aaron Sweatt is an 18-year-old from Allentown, PA. Aaron loves playing basketball - and his favorite XBOX game is NBA 2K. He lives with his grandparents, Linda and Thomas. He was diagnosed with a brain cancer known as germinoma in August 2015 at the beginning of his senior year of high school.
Aaron’s diagnosis was sudden. He went into work one day and passed out. The hospital did a series of tests and scans to find out why, and they found a mass in his head. Aaron went through an initial course of treatment, but the cancer returned after he graduated from high school. Because of the recurrence of his cancer, Aaron had to drop out of Lehigh Carbon Community College, where he was studying psychology.
Aaron is now in remission, but is struggling with chronic pain. Doctors are still trying to identify its cause. Aaron’s grandparents take him on trips around town, and he also spends time watching Netflix. He hopes to return to college after he starts feeling well again.

Q: If you could do one activity for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Q: If you wanted the world to remember one thing about yourself, what would it be?
