Business Name

Demand Cures Today - The Gateway for Cancer Research

What do you do?

We fund innovative phase I and phase II human cancer clinical trials to find better treatments and cures for today’s cancer patients. Our vision is to lead in shaping a world in which a cancer diagnosis is no longer feared. Where many cancer charities raise money for awareness, walks, and marketing/admin expenses, we donate 99 cents of every dollar received to cancer research. No walks, no corporate pockets, no marketing expenses…truly 99 cents of every dollar received funds cancer research.

Primarily women but for men too. Anyone who supports cancer research, and is tired of the "Pink" (corporate pinkwashing) phenomenon.

What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your clothing design?

1. Cancer is not pink – cancer is not pretty.
2. Cures for cancer will come through research, not the sale of pink items
3. It’s someone you love… Cancer affects virtually everyone: men, women, children, loved ones, friends and family. Cancer does not discriminate on color, race or religion.
(4. Someone you know needs a cure.)

Brief updates

The primary focus of the designs should be placed on the "cancer is not pink" concept, while the secondary focus should reflect the 99 cents messaging.

We are extending the submission deadline to WEDNESDAY October 3. Keep the great designs coming!

The designs have gotten increasingly better and are really starting to reflect the "Cancer Is NOT Pink" messaging. We'd like to get 20-30 more quality designs to choose from for this important cancer awareness t-shirt. Thanks for everyone's hard work so far!
