I wrote this post in 2011. The complete post is below. However, I wanted to inform you that the Save 2nd Base shirts link below do not work. I am not sure what happened to this website / organization.
If you would like to purchase Save 2nd Base t-shirts that also donate to breast cancer research, please purchase from this Etsy shop. Shirts on this shop are $12 each and that includes $5 that is automatically donated to a research fund.
Save 2nd Base sells t-shirts and hats in an effort to raise awareness and funds to fight breast cancer. What sets them apart is their sense of humor. It is the same sense of humor their founder Kelly Rooney had when she designed shirts for a cancer walk. While Kelly lost her fight against breast cancer in 2006, her message is still being spread on the t-shirts and hats she started.
Proceeds from the sale of these items benefit the Kelly Rooney Foundation, which inspires further support, research and eradication of the disease in young women, and pledges ongoing funds for breast cancer research surrounding high-risk women under the age of 40.
I have a very close friend that I watched fight breast cancer. Her family and church family are all celebrating her remission! And we are all still praying that she continues to get these good reports.
The need for cancer research is so real. Cancer, the “c” word, is ugly and a thief. I support organizations that raise funds and awareness for breast cancer research and will continue to help campaign in whatever way I can until they find a cure.
