The pink shirt that Gilbert High School cheerleaders planned to wear, but was banned from their school, continues to spark varied opinions. The shirt, which was created to raise money for breast cancer, bearing the slogan "Feel for lumps - Save your bumps," was immediately banned by the principal with parents on both sides, according to USA Today.
People across the country have started to add their two cents. Diane Walker of Boston started an online petition to support the cheerleaders' shirts, as this story continued to create divides across the country. The petition, which is on change.org, has already produced 50 signatures, according to the news source.
One positive outcome is that it certainly brought some attention to breast cancer awareness
and the media outlet reports that because of it, they have raised a lot of money for the cause.
According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer at some point during her lifetime. It is the second most common form of cancer among women, following only skin cancer.
