Probably the same place you can buy 'I Love Willies' bracelets for penile cancer, or 'I Love Nads' bracelets for testicular cancer. Sorry to be harsh, but as someone who's had breast cancer I find slogans like that offensive, and trivialising of a deadly disease. Cutesie baby words are only ever used in connection with breast cancer, no other cancer. Breast cancer is a deadly disease, with disfiguring surgery, grueling treatments and no cure. Sexualising breasts, and calling breasts by childish names, just adds to the popular notion of breast cancer as a trivial and somehow 'sexy' disease. We should be campaigning for breast cancer awareness because it's a deadly disease - it kills an average of 112 women in the US every day, and an average of 33 women in the UK every day - not because we 'love boobies'. And somehow it's all the more inappropriate because 80% of women diagnosed are over 50 and the average age at diagnosis is over 60. As a woman approaching 60, I can assure you that interest in your 'boobies' is pretty minimal by the time you reach the age at which you're at risk of breast cancer. There's no denying that breast cancer is trivialised by all the pink fluffy nonsense that surrounds breast cancer awareness and fund raising, and this trivialisation gives the impression that breast cancer is a less serious disease than it is. And slogans like this play their part. What's wrong with calling breasts 'breasts' and having a slogan that actually has something to say? Or why not just donate money? At least that way it would all go to its intended charity. ==== Edit: @ Maggie - I actually agree with you - I hate Breast Cancer Awareness Month (most women I know who've ad breast cancer do, they call it Pink October, and not in an affectionate way) and all the pink nonsense that surrounds it. But that's irrelevant to the dscussion of the 'boobies' bracelets. Think about the possibility of an 'I Love D!cks' or an 'I love Balls' bracelet for other types of cancer. Wouldn't happen, would it? Would you or the OP find such a bracelet offensive? It's no more or less offensive than 'I Love Boobies'.

Hi Dan! You can buy Love Boobies braclets on Amazon. http://amzn.to/aRsYbA?dg20sy
I'm sure you can get those bracelets on amazon. I would also look around in stores that might have that kind of thing. They seem to be very popular, most people at my high school have them. To the other poster- I can see how you find slogans offensive, but breast cancer awareness is all over the place, I dont think more people need to go out and campaign about it, at least in the us. I don't mean to be offensive or take anything away from breast cancer, but i think childhood cancer awareness is what needs more attention. September is childhood cancer awareness month, and most people don't even know about it. It's not even October, but already there are pink ribbons everywhere, and several different commercials on tv. When a child is having symptoms, cancer is often the last thing in a parents and even a doctors mind, and this often leads to late diagnosis, and this is where increased awareness would be helpful
