These free breast cancer awareness SVG files were a lot of fun to design and create. Now I get to share them with you!
For Breast Cancer Awareness Month this year, I already provided a free double mastectomy pillow pattern and tutorial, showed you how to make a waterproof drain bag holder using common materials, and shared a brand new pattern that let’s you create a bra bumper port pillow for exercising.
The only thing missing were some messages of hope in the form of free SVGs!
Some Fast Figures About Breast Cancer
According to the Susan G. Komen literature, breast cancer estimates for 2020 among women in the US were:
– 276,480 new cases of invasive breast cancer (This includes new cases of primary breast cancer, but not recurrences of original breast cancers.)
– 48,530 new cases of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS), a non-invasive breast cancer
– 42,170 breast cancer deaths
Just those three statistics are a simple reminder of how much breast cancer impacts women in the United States.
For this reason, I will always create tutorials and free patterns and cut files that support those impacted by breast cancer here in the US and abroad.
What Should I Make With These Breast Cancer SVGs?
Here are some ideas on different ways to use the files to get you started.
Personalize A Chemo Care Bag
If you know someone whose treatment involves chemotherapy, pulling together a chemo care bag is an easy way to be supportive and creative.
Creating something with a personal touch is always appreciated and this chemo care bag provides several ways to make it your own.
Decorating the tote is the first step to adding a special touch and you’ll need the following
– A cotton or canvas tote.
You can get a pack of 5 lightweight cotton totes* on Amazon for less than $12 so this project can easily be less than $5.00 including the HTV.
– Heat transfer vinyl (HTV) in the colors of your choice.
If you’re tight for time, and don’t have HTV in your stash, Amazon has a large selection of heat transfer vinyl* options.
If you’re not in a rush, I like to purchase HTV from Milan Sign Supply because they have great pricing per sheet and an extensive selection. Although they are shipping internationally, the cost to ship is very reasonable and they are quick to get it in the post.
After you decorate the tote, you’ll need to fill it with items that the recipient will like. Here are some options to consider:
– A warm hat made of fleece or soft, machine-washable yarn.
– A pair of warm, fuzzy socks.
– A fleece lap blanket. A reusable bottle or insulated mug to hold the person’s favorite beverage.
– Tea bags (optional: place them in a tea wallet)
– Lip balm (optional: place it in a lip balm holder)
– A way to pass the time. This could be the person’s favorite magazine or sudoku book (they are easy to find at Dollar Tree!).

Sew An Inspirational Chemo Port Pillow
A chemo port pillow is one of the most requested items at cancer support organizations, which is why I have done several tutorials on different ways to create them here on Create To Donate.
The most recent tutorial shows you how to create an inspirational port pillow.
Since the port pillow is used as a seat belt protector, I liked the idea of having something help the person keep a positive mindset while running errands, going to work, and, most importantly, heading to treatment.
Make A Breast Cancer Awareness A T-shirt
Many breast cancer survivors take pride and solace in letting people know they were warriors.
Making a t-shirt with Create To Donate’s free breast cancer survivor SVG design is a quick project where hiccups are unlikely if you are already familiar with how to use two HTV colors.
If you’re new to a two-color design, you’ll want to place and press the black lettering first, then add the pink ribbon.
PRO TIP: Don’t forget your teflon pressing sheet.*
Which Free Breast Cancer Awareness SVG Will You Use?
As showcased above, I created several difference designs to promote breast cancer awareness.
I tried to capture different stages of the cancer journey so that you can make things over time for family and friends.
Each of the free designs is offered in English and in Spanish and the download is a ZIP file that includes a PNG and an SVG file.
The designs are grouped by language below.
