In May of this year, a good friend of mine and fellow Dalmatian owner was diagnosed with breast cancer. She was the second Dal friend who received this devastating diagnosis in the past year. I struggled with a way that I could support my friend through her diagnosis and treatment, and I teamed up with a graphic artist and a printer to design and sell t-shirts to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness, in honor of my friends. As a result of our efforts, I formed a non-profit called "Spot a Cure."
Pictured below are the two t-shirt designs that we developed. Design #1 is called "No Obstacle Too Big to Conquer" and is printed large on the back of a white t-shirt with Design #2 printed smaller on the front left chest of the shirt.
Design #2 is called "Spot a Cure" and is also printed large on the back of the t-shirt with Design #1 printed smaller on the left front chest of the shirt.
If you look closely, you may see a Dal you know! Tess was the model for the "No Obstacle Too Big to Conquer" shirt, and Jazz's handsome half-brother Gage was the model for the "Spot a Cure" design.
Each of these shirts is available in adult sizes S, M, L, XL, and 2XL for $15, plus $5 to defray expenses of shipping and handling. Nearly $10 from each shirt will be donated to breast cancer research/awareness. The shirts are digitally printed in full color, front and back. They are available for purchase on our website at http://www.spotacure.com/, where you can securely order online through PayPal.
One in seven women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. The woman you help by supporting Spot a Cure may be you or someone you love! Please pass this information along to any of your friends or family who may be interested in purchasing one of our t-shirts. With each shirt purchased, we're including a laminated shower card with instructions for performing a breast self-examination. Both of my friends detected their tumors through this important test only months after having clear mammograms. Help us "Spot a Cure" for breast cancer by ordering one of these great t-shirts today!
