Why I Wear Pink
To make a difference. To help someone. In honor of my Aunt Alice. My aunt fought a courageous battle against this formidable foe that she ultimately did not win. Our family misses her and the joy she brought to our lives so very much.
The color pink is a paradox. Pink. Such a feminine, gentle, caring color the exact opposite of breast cancer: invasive, aggressive, indiscriminate.
I wear pink because I have seen the fight needed to defeat breast cancer as my aunt walked through her days of treatment and navigated her diagnosis. I wear it to honor all the survivors, but also to remember all those that we have lost to this cause. It affects everyone, even if you're not directly the person with the diagnosis. Maybe you are the caregiver or the family member or the best friend. Even so, breast cancer affects everyone. By raising money and awareness through Real Men Wear Pink, I'm helping to save more lives from breast cancer with the hope that families and friends can enjoy more time with their loved ones.
Why I Support the American Cancer SocietyEvery 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.
