Save the Boobies! Breast Cancer Awareness T-Shirts

Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer? How about someone who has been affected in any way by the disease? People all over this country are affected every day by breast cancer. Not just the women who are diagnosed with it, but their families, friends, coworkers, and everyone connected to them. When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, it is frightening news not just for her but for her husband and children (if she has them), her parents and siblings, her friends—male or female—and anyone else who cares about her. Parents may even worry about their female daughters who will grow up to be women and be susceptible to breast cancer someday.

What many people who have been affected by breast cancer agree upon—whether their loves ones beat the cancer or did not—is that finding a cure is the most important thing we can do. Searching for a cure involves raising a lot of money and forwarding science until we reach a day when women and their loved ones won’t have to live in fear of this deadly disease.

There are many ways to support the search for a cure for breast cancer. You could do a breast cancer walk, in which you raise money by getting people to sponsor your walk. You then join with hundreds or even thousands of other supporters in symbolic walk to fight breast cancer. These events are very inspirational, and call much-needed attention to the urgent issue of breast cancer research.

One other way to display your passion for the search to end breast cancer is to design your own custom t-shirts that highlight the message. This way, you can control what you say to the public, whether it’s just people you’re passing on the street, or an audience waiting to hear you speak about breast cancer. There are lots of different ways to design the t-shirts. If your main goal is to get people thinking, then you might want to think up some slogans that really catch the eye and set the mind to work. One liners can often be the most thought-provoking way to grab people’s attention. Just make sure that you stand by the meaning of your slogan before you put it on a t-shirt.

Another angle you can take when designing your t-shirt is to try to inform people about breast cancer. You have to be careful not to put too much information on the t-shirt, though—you want passersby to be able to read it, after all! So choose what you feel are the most important or most illustrative statistics or facts about breast cancer, and highlight them on your t-shirt. This might do just as well with grabbing people’s attention and alerting them to how devastating breast cancer can be. Sometimes people need an example to really be inspired to get involved and make a difference.

However you go about it, don’t hesitate to get out there in your t-shirt and let people know about this cause that is so important to all of us.


Pink T-Shirts and Breast Cancer Walks Raise Money and Awareness


Breast Cancer walks have been an incredible way for organizations such as the Avon Foundation and Susan G. Komen to raise awareness and money for breast cancer research and education. Actress Reese Witherspoon was named the Honorary Chairman of the Avon Foundation and gave a speech at the walk’s closing ceremonies. As with most of the walkers Witherspoon was wearing the bright pink Avon Walk for Breast cancer T-Shirt.

The Avon Foundation is a 501(c)(3) public charity founded in 1955 with a mission to improve the lives of women and their families. Today that mission is brought to life through two key initiatives: the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade, which advances access to care and finding a cure, with a focus on the medically underserved; and the Speak Out Against Domestic Violence program which works to end the cycle of domestic violence, with a special focus on children.

Raise Awareness with Custom Breast Cancer T-shirts

“I walk for my mom”
“Walk for Bust!”
“You don’t scare me: I’m a cancer survivor”
“New and Improved: Now Cancer Free”
“I wear pink for my mom”
You’ve seen the catchy slogans dot the street whenever tens of thousands of women march to raise awareness for breast cancer. It’s hard to miss the messages from survivors and supporters. Even if a woman is wearing her shirt while shopping alone at the grocery store, that t-shirt sends a message to all shoppers to do their part to help. That could mean participating in a local event, making a donation or a reminder to all women to do a simple breast check.

The shirts not only raise awareness to people driving and walking by, they unite and empower participants. A transformation takes place when a patient, survivor or caretaker puts on a t-shirt that says, “Beating Cancer, Priceless” or “Squeeze a boob: Save a life.” Some shirts make us laugh while others are provocative and feisty. They send clear messages about beating cancer, raising awareness and the camaraderie that goes with being a survivor.

The best part is that most of the money raised from the sale of Breast Cancer awareness shirts actually goes to helping patients, research for a cure and prevention education. You can buy shirts from organizations like the American Cancer Society, Relay for Life and Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. You can also sell your own designs to make money for local and family organizations or to send a pool of cash to the big national groups in the name of your friends and family.

There are a lot of resources to buy t-shirts online. It’s typically easy and inexpensive to create and buy t-shirts over the internet. And, you can do the designing and shopping from the comfort of your own home. You can choose from a wide variety of shirt and ink colors, and you can customize shirts for your walking team or family by putting team names on the back. You can also create your own design decked with the face of your survivor. This allows you to get the exact t-shirt you want. And of course, the end result is quite professional, and will be something that you are proud to wear day in and day out.

With most online design sites it’s easy. You pick your t-shirt color, add text, pictures, and names. You can choose from ideas and ready-made art and slogans or use your own. Choose different styles and sleeve lengths. Then, get a quote. In some cases there is a minimum order. But, usually, the more t-shirts you buy, the better the discount. It typically takes about two weeks for your shirts to arrive.

For one group, the t-shirts started as support, turned into a fundraiser and then into an empowering memorial as they continued to raise money for cancer. Here’s what Ellen B. said about their custom t-shirts, “We originally made T-shits as a support to our hero and friend Sara who battled breast cancer twice. After so much interest we upped the order and developed a fundraiser for her and her family. We sold over 100 shirts and provided the family a means to help pay for medical expenses. We wore our shirts during the Relay for Life event. Sara came to cheer us on. We took a team photo and now it’s on this year’s team t-shirts. Sara died this year. But, we honor her and wear her memory as walk this year. We are very proud to have known her and what it means to give support to a family who is in need. The T-shirts were and still are a voice in her honor.”
