Why I Wear Pink
I am a cancer survivor. I understand what a diagnosis of cancer means, not only to me, but my family and friends. It is not fun to have to deal with a life threatening event. I still get scared, 28 years later when I have to go to the doctor.
That’s why this initiative is so important to me, I am stepping up to fight breast cancer with all I have. I’m in a position to make a difference within my community.
Breast cancer affects everyone - it doesn't matter if you're a man or a woman. By raising money and awareness through Real Men Wear Pink, I, along with my staff at Sound Shore Vision Center, will help to save more lives from breast cancer.
During the month of October 2020, we will donate $10 for every pair of eyeglasses or a one year
supply of contact lenses sold.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
When I was diagnosed, I had to go through multiple surgeries and chemo. For some reason I was more scared of chemo than anything else. I didn’t want to go through with it. The American Cancer Society provided a counselor to help me deal with this issue. They gave me the confidence to deal with my fears.
I want to thank those volunteers and the American Cancer Society. 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.
