"I'm supporting the American Cancer Society and you can, too!" - Dave Moore
Why I Wear Pink
Breast cancer affects everyone - it doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman. That's why I'm stepping up to fight breast cancer with all I have. Since I'm in a position to make a difference within my community, I believe I have an obligation to do so. By raising money and awareness through Real Men Wear Pink, I'm helping to save more lives from breast cancer.
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.
Why This Campaign is so important to me
I am taking part in this campaign because breast cancer is not only the second leading cause of death among women, but it has struck my family and countless friends as well. My sister is a two-time survivor of breast cancer . Several members of my wife's family, including her mother, have battled this cancer twice. My wife and her sister both have the BRCA-1 gene and have undergone preventative surgeries. My office manager lost her grandmother to cancer before the many advancements in treatment were available years ago. And most recently, a dear friend and coworker in the homebuilding community was diagnosed with triple negative and is currently undergoing treatment. As you can see, this cause is close to my heart. Seeing the families that I know and love struggle with the battle against cancer, I want to do whatever I can to fight this battle with them. #realmenwearpink
