I don’t know if you’ve heard, but I’m participating in the Real Men Wear Pink Campaign and I need your help. Every day, until the end of October, I’ll be wearing pink to raise money and awareness for the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives from breast cancer.
I joined Real Men Wear Pink of the Valley this week to support friends and family impacted by this terrible disease. Breast cancer affects everyone: both women and men. Every dollar raised helps the American Cancer Society save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.
- About 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
- About 2,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in men in 2018. A man’s lifetime risk of breast cancer is about 1 in 1,000.
- About 40,920 women in the U.S. are expected to die in 2018 from breast cancer.
- For women in the U.S., breast cancer death rates are higher than those for any other cancer, besides lung cancer.
