Breast Cancer Awareness Tshirt - Custom (WDBreastCancer)
Please Be Patient with Shipping Times.
This is a very special shirt for us. Jarret Bowie, a technician here, lost his mother Missy Bowie this year. Missy fought breast cancer for a staggering 17 years before losing her battle in April of 2019.
We are raising money for two charities, our goal is to sell 200 shirts in October. One small purchase from you can make a huge difference to the people still battling this awful disease. All of the proceeds will immediately go to the two charities below.
