National Cancer Survivors Day Products
Not exactly barbecue sauce, but these products would make great gifts.
I've recently had the pleasure of virtually (via Facebook) meeting many members of my extended family. I never knew them growing up, so it's a treat to see the folks that my dad grew up with and getting to know my second and third cousins, along with a few great aunts and great uncles, has been a blast. One cousin, Sunshine, got the family all riled up on Facebook when she chose to enter a slogan contest for a barbecue sauce company.
Diligently, she entered more than 2,000 slogans. Family members "liked" them on Facebook, joined the page that hosted the contest and commented on her entries. The grand prize was a year's supply of what else - barbecue sauce. We wondered what a year's supply actually entailed (I mean, I use probably two bottles per annum), and it turns out it was 48 bottles.
Sunny has big plans for her loot. She's going to use it to spice up a dinner for cancer survivors in her area. We'll also all get to try it at two upcoming family reunions, but she's most excited about sharing her winnings with the cancer survivors who will celebrate together.
If you'll be attending a similar event or want to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day (June 6), we have a page of cancer awareness products to get you started. I selected three items that could work for a cancer survivors' event or as a gift for a cancer survivor in your life.
- Ovarian Cancer Teal Awareness Ribbon Pins: Ovarian cancer is insidious and can be devastating. We have a wide collection of awareness ribbon pins, but I wanted to highlight this one because a family friend is currently undergoing treatment for ovarian cancer and it hasn't been an easy road.
- Put the Squeeze on Breast Cancer T-shirts: Spread awareness and encourage others to get mammograms. This short-sleeved shirt would be a good gift for breast cancer survivors hoping to spread the word.
- Cancer Awareness Notepads: These notepads come in packs of three, so they might work well for big events as handouts or small prizes. The notepads feature a variety of awareness ribbons and say, "Awareness is a family affair. Early detection is your best protection."
