Traci Gendron and her son Tanner opened Storm Men’s Shop to help find a cure for cystinosis.

A men’s shop with a mission has opened in Old Town Fort Collins.

Storm Men’s Shop donates 100% of its profits toward curing cystinosis, an extremely rare disease that attacks internal organs.

Shop owner Traci Gendron and her son Tanner know all too well the need for cystinosis funding. Tanner has the disease, for which there is currently no cure. With only 2,000 cystinosis patients in the world, research funding is scarce.

“I was impressed to learn that this local business is 100% charitable to raise funds and awareness to stamp out this very rare disease,” said Fr. Steven Voss, our pastor, after a recent visit to the shop.

The shop unites Traci and Tanner in a common purpose. “We wanted to create something that my son Tanner and I could do together. It is a win-win for us,” they said on Facebook. “When you shop with us you are also supporting the cure we hoping for. Thank you so much.”

Located at 132 W. Mountain Ave., Storm Men’s Shop describes itself  as “a mid to upscale clothing shop. We can help dress the young professional to the mature man. From casual everyday to going out, and to the office.”

  1. I am so excited to see this store and can’t wait to shop there for my husband and family members. My adorable 11 year old niece suffers from this rare disease. Praise the Lord for your loving efforts and ambition toward finding a cure for this disease! God bless you both!
