Why I Wear Pink

 Why I Wear Pink                                                                                                                                                                                    I come from a healthcare background having gone to pharmacy school at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh.  I know a great deal about various diseases but cancer hit home in many ways that changed my life forever. I have one sibling, my younger brother Jeff and at age 47, on the day he brought his one and only child home, Amber, he was told he had cancer, 5 weeks later I said goodbye to him. This impacted me in a profound and everlasting way. How devastating this disease is and how fast it can steal a life, but also steal the memories never had.

We also had one of our most cherished friends diagnosed with breast cancer a few years later and stood side by side through that entire series of events. Now in the last 3 years, my sister in law was diagnosed with blood cancer and we do all we can to support and surround her with love and hope.  Just today, my sister in law, my brother’s wife called and was diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer,  once again our family will stand up, will fight and we will win.

The impact that cancer has to steal our loved ones, the impact of taking what is a vibrant and energized life and that life taken so that others never get the light, the glow of love and energy is what drives me to want a change and see a change. I also became involved with Kids Kicking Cancer as a Black belt and saw firsthand what this disease does to children and families, but also what can happen when given a purpose and given hope, so anything I can do, anything our family can do to make just a small impact , we are in 150%. WE ARE HONORED TO HELP!

                                                                                                                                                                            

Why I Support the American Cancer Society
As indicated the ACS has been a huge resource to help our family with information and people to talk to and to help target resources when we were lost and had no idea where to turn, from my own personal experience with my brother to my sister and her needs during a time where just getting information, but accurate information was key.

 What are you most excited about being involved in the Real Men Wear Pink campaign?                             To get the word out and to get more people educated and involved that you can help and you can make a difference

Cancer has touched all of us in some way. And we want to stop this disease in its tracks. We'll spend the next few weeks fundraising for the American Cancer Society. Then, on the day of the event, we'll honor the lives lost to cancer, celebrate survivors, and support the caregivers who so selflessly help others.  

Together, we'll be a part of making a difference in this important cause.
