It’s funny how inspiration works.  One thing leads to another which leads to another and pretty soon you’ve landed on a fantastic idea.

My chemo bills are starting to stack up.  I have good insurance but I do need to pay my share of the hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of treatment I’ve received over the past 18 months.  Luckily, the cancer clinic has been very gracious about the financial burden the bills have placed on my family.

Shane and I have brainstormed additional ways to make money.  It’s just what entrepreneurs do.  If we need money, we figure out a way to make it.  That is how we’ve managed to stay in business for 17 years, surviving 2 recessions.

How to Design a Pink Ribbon T-Shirt

The seed for our latest inspiration was planted when I saw this sign on the bulletin board at my yoga for breast cancer survivors class:


Then my friend Leo, owner of Conroe Coffee, visited me during chemo…


…and took this picture of me dancing with my IV pole:


Which inspired me to create this meme:


Which inspired my husband, Shane, to design these pink ribbon t-shirts:

"I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness" Pink Ribbon IV Pole Dancer t-shirt

“I am in charge of how I feel and today I choose happiness” Pink Ribbon IV Pole Dancer t-shirt

You can order your very own “I am in Charge Pink Ribbon IV Pole Dancer” t-shirt from Teespring. We’d very much appreciate your support.
