I began a new habit for October. It started last year when I joined my friends at the American Cancer Society (ACS) for their Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Every day in October, I will wear pink and post photographs of my outfit on social media. I’m doing this to help save lives from breast cancer. I’ll do it to show my support, raise awareness, and raise funds for this important cause.
I’m committed to Real Men Wear Pink. These donations support the ACS work to save lives. They are determined to ensure that no one touched by breast cancer does it alone. They are committed to helping those currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis, those who may face a future diagnosis, and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and prevention.
Every dollar raised helps through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support. They are currently funding more than $62 million in breast cancer research grants nationwide. They also proved free, comprehensive information and support to those touched by breast cancer when where they need it and the ACS helps people take steps to reduce their breast cancer risk or find it early, when it may be the easiest to treat.
If you’ve been following this blog, my social media, my podcast, or my television show you know breast cancer has been the theme recently. This has hit me personally. Breast Cancer has struck my family, friends, and coworkers. Almost certainly, it has affected you or someone you care about. You can support my Real Men Wear Pink efforts by going to my Facebook Fundraiser. Please take the time to share it on social media or donate whatever amount you can. Your donation truly will help someone in need.
