Real Men Wear Pink of the Valley campaign has just 8 more days

The Real Men Wear Pink of the Valley campaign has just 8 more days. That is it, just eight more days of wearing PINK and asking for donations.

However, this does not mark the end for anyone that is fighting breast cancer. This is a month of raising awareness and money. It is a chance for each of us to encourage someone we love to get an exam because early detection saves lives.

It is a chance for us to show support to those in the fight or those that have won their fight. It is a chance to remember those that have finished their fight. While wearing PINK is a fun thing for guys to do to raise awareness, there is nothing fun about this disease. I believe we can beat it once and for all. I believe that the work we are doing to raise money is making a difference. I believe the local American Cancer Society office is doing work to help those in the fight feel loved.

So over the next few days I hope we can hit our team goal of $50,000. We have a long way to go, this morning we are at $34,000. This is an individual competition between the guys of the valley to be the top Real Man (I am in third right now). It is also a competition between Real Men campaigns around the state (we are in first place right now). So I am asking for your help one last time.

Why am I wearing PINK in October? Because Real Men Wear Pink

Why am I wearing PINK in October? Because it brings questions, strange looks, and conversation. Because Real Men Wear Pink.

Today marks the start of the Real Men Wear Pink of the Valley campaign. We can change these statistics with awareness and funding. If I wear pink everyday in October it may lead to one more person getting a screening or one more person learning about symptoms early enough to be treated. If you can give $10, $20, $100, or more you are helping. Just sharing this blog post is helping save lives. Thank you for your support! Thanks for sharing this post! Thanks for making a difference!

Real Men Wear Pink of the Valley

real men wear pink

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.

Help bring us closer to a world free from the pain and suffering of breast cancer. Click on the link at the bottom of this article to learn more and make a donation.
