Over the years, Websticker.com has produced thousands of custom stickers, labels, and magnets for a wide range of campaigns. When we first view the art, the cause can sometimes be difficult to decipher and might require a Google search or a visit to the organization’s website to understand what cause the design promotes. In the strongest designs, the cause is obvious and the campaign message is communicated clearly upon first glance at the sticker. Over the last few years, we’ve produced stickers and labels for a campaign with a design that shouts its cause loud and clear: a cartoon tumor with its tongue sticking out and the text “TUMORS SUCK!”
A visit to mAsskickers.org will expand upon the origins of this crusade against tumors. After being diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2005, Eric Galvez started a Facebook page called “TUMORS SUCK” to connect with others in his situation, and as the page grew, he realized that he was relating to people with all sorts of tumors. On the Facebook page people post pictures of the “TUMORS SUCKS” stickers and labels stuck on people, places, and things. As awareness grew, Galvez founded mAss Kickers Foundation in 2008 with the mission to “provide support and motivation to all newly-diagnosed patients, family, and friends affected by tumors or cancer.”
The goals of mAss Kickers Foundation are powerful and admirable. Amongst other things, they strive to “Promote Unity among ALL cancer/tumor types and between patients and their loved ones through a common “pugilistic” attitude”. What’s a better way to promote unity 7 days a week, 365 days a year, than with a sticker campaign? The “TUMORS SUCK” stickers fuel awareness by catching people’s eyes and directing them to the mAss Kickers website, which is full of useful articles, profiles of survivors, and special events. There’s also a store when you can purchase stickers and join the movement against tumors. The stickers scream a message that can be verbally challenging to share with the world. If you’ve ever had a tumor, or have been close with someone who has, you can relate to the message and connect to the person who has stuck it out for the world to see.
