I am proud to be part of the Class of 2020 Real Men Wear Pink Hartford / Springfield presented by Pfizer.
Why I Wear PinkFriends, family and loved ones... I heard results from my three biopsies last week (week of 8/10) and the one on my chest is benign, the one on my back is basal cell and will need an ED&C, and the one on my lip above my mustache is basal cell and will require MOHS Surgery. This is par for the course and why I get scanned every 6 months. I am so lucky to be a cancer survivor with an operable and maintainable form.
This is, in part, why I committed to raise funds for Breast Cancer research and resources as part of "Real Men Wear Pink" between now and 10/31/20. I am asking you for support on this journey.* If you'd like to be a cheer leader, you can.* If you'd like to be a donor, you can.* If you'd like be a team member and raise funds as well, you can. Feel free to let me know. In addition, I will be looking for pink items to wear and display during this fund raising effort. If you want to suggest or send me something, I can't wait to see what it may be!I would love to lock arms with any of you my beloved friends and family to really move the needle on this fundraiser.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society is saving more lives from breast cancer than ever before. They're helping people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early, when it's easier to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it. They fund groundbreaking breast cancer research and they're working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.
