My family wants to wear alternative buttons or shirts this October. Does anyone have suggestions or links on where to get some asap?

We want to promote "awareness" that pink picnics and marketing end up contributing very little money toward finding a cure, even though around 30 percent of early stagers progress to stage iv/metastatic through no fault of their own, and some are stage iv at diagnosis. (These are the people made invisible in the typical awareness campaign, and the ones who die of the disease.) We want people to know that this disease is not fun, cute, sexy, or a great free boob job.

Also, once people get this message, we would like to be able to suggest a couple organizations they can donate to that will actually use their donation to help find better stage iv treatments and eventually a cure.

I’m getting feedback from Stage IV folks suggesting groups such as Metavivor and MetUp are worthy recipients of donations.

Recommended reading is the site set up a couple of years ago by regulars on this thread:

Amazon sells shirts from Cafe Press - Some artists may make donations or have cancer, unfortunately not stated. This is the fastest way to get a shirt order though. All shirts available in different colors and styles.

* I am bewildered at how many great products there are that denounce the ribbons but don't offer a website for a worthy charity. Does anyone know how to add text ourselves to a shirt? Sharpies, Iron on Letters....... any suggestions?

I think Cafe Press allows you to design your own shirts. Or find a local t shirt shop and do your own. Big Frog is local for me, and on line. Doesn't get any proceeds to research, but you can wear your feelings.
