Breast cancer is the most common cancer diagnosis in women today. Yet, thanks to earlier detection through screening, increased awareness and improved treatment, death rates have declined by 42% since 1989.
These alarming, yet hopeful stats are why I’m joining this year’s Men Wear Pink national campaign as the Genuine Parts Company (GPC) honoree. I am extremely fortunate to be surrounded daily by strong and powerful women. While I am truly thankful that this disease has not directly impacted my immediate family, there are so many of my friends and colleagues who have been impacted by breast cancer. I am joining this campaign to spread hope – for those touched by this disease and for all those who may avoid it through prevention and detection.
Breast cancer is a disease that knows no boundaries – impacting women and men across the globe. Through this campaign, I hope to truly make a difference by raising funds and awareness to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to save more lives.
To jumpstart my campaign, GPC is not only supporting my efforts with a financial donation, but we’re doing our part to help spread the word about prevention and early detection by hosting a mobile mammography clinic and lunch & learn sessions for our teammates.
If you see me around Atlanta, or in my travels across the globe throughout October, you’ll likely catch me wearing PINK to show my support and bring additional awareness to this fight.
I’m proud to join the other men in this campaign, but sorry guys – this is a competition! Please join this fight by making a financial donation to my campaign today. My goal for the competition is to raise a minimum of $200,000, and I will personally contribute 2.5% of total funds you help me raise through my campaign.
The amount you donate doesn’t matter; simply giving to this great cause makes a difference. Every dollar helps, so please consider a donation of $10, $25, $100, $250, $2,500 or any amount to help me in the fight against breast cancer!

Investing in breakthrough science to find more - and better - treatments, uncover factors that may cause breast cancer, and improve patients' quality of life.
Ensuring that all people have a fair and just opportunity to prevent, find, treat, and survive breast cancer. ACS and ACS CAN believe all people should have a fair and just opportunity to live a longer, healthier life free from cancer regardless of how much money they make, the color of their skin, their sexual orientation, gender identity, their disability status, or where they live.
