The title for this blog “Katie Crushes Cancer” was born mostly out of my love for alliteration but also out of my feelings those first days after being diagnosed. I had no idea what the journey would hold but I knew I wanted to crush it. Crushing cancer has never been about beating the disease because even those who succumb to it can still “crush it.” It’s more about a mindset of resilience, perseverance and heart. As responsible members of society we all have the opportunity to “crush cancer” in our everyday lives by treating our bodies right and holding our governments and corporations accountable for creating a healthy world. See my top 10 cancer crushing tips here.
I originally designed the shirts after the fundraising masterminds I call my friends were determined to help Andrew and me cover our out-of-pocket medical costs. We were so grateful for the support that we wanted to keep spreading the “Crush Cancer” love so now 100% of proceeds from all “Crush Cancer” swag purchased goes to Breast Cancer Action and First Descents. The new shirts no longer have the “Proud Member of Team Katie Crushes Cancer” on the back so that anyone can wear these in support of any and all of the cancer crushers in their lives.
You can now get a “Crush Cancer” t-shirt, hoodie, tank top, or tote bag for the men, women, kids, toddlers and babies in your life! You can even order them in whatever color you like! And the best part is that 100% of the proceeds will go towards supporting these awesome cancer-fighting organizations!
Breast Cancer Action is an advocacy organization focused on systemic interventions to achieve health justice for all women at risk of and living with breast cancer.
First Descents is a non-profit that offers young adult cancer fighters and survivors a free outdoor adventure experience designed to empower them to defy their cancer, reclaim their lives and connect with others doing the same.
