Walz Caps for a Cause

Walz Cap for a Cure

From Walz Caps:

One in eight women is diagnosed with breast cancer in the course of her lifetime. Breast cancer is a disease that affects women, men and the family and friends that love them.

This quarter Walz Caps is supporting the Susan J. Komen For The Cure Foundation. They are the “world’s largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists, who are working together to save lives, empower people, ensure quality care for all and energize science to find the cures”.

Our black wool flannel cap includes our cotton blend material on the racing stripe and under the bill. The racing stripe is a brilliant pink which is screened with the words “Find A Cure” and the breast cancer ribbons are screened under the bill.

As with all our Caps For A Cause, $10 of every cap purchased will be donated directly to our chosen cause.

    I think the hats are a nice idea.

    Is it possible you could contact them about making one to support prostate cancer research? Maybe with a blue stripe?

    Some prostate cancer stats:
    – 1 in 6 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer.
    – Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer.
    – About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer. Prostate cancer accounts for about 11% of cancer-related deaths in men.

    Prostate cancer is an unfun disease and it can leave men in terrible shape.

    just want to be clear, I am not against breast cancer research or support for that research. I’m only asking for some attention to prostate cancer, too.

    Hooray for pinkwashing.

    Thanks for doing this Alan. My Wife is part of that 1 in 8. She’s 5 years out from being diagnosed with breast cancer and going strong but its not something I would wish on any woman or family. I hate Cancer and hope we can all celebrate a cure someday. Again thanks for your support of this cause. I know what will be on my xmas list.
