I'm supporting the American Cancer Society and you can, too!

Why I Wear Pink

Do you know that each year more than a quarter of a million women are diagnosed with breast cancer?  One of these women is the wife of one of my best friends from law school.  She has been battling breast cancer for almost two decades.  I’ve witnessed first-hand not only how courageous she is as a fighter, but also how strong my friend is as her biggest supporter.  They have handled life with breast cancer with such grace and grit and are an inspiration to all who know them.

I’m proudly stepping up to fight breast cancer for these dear friends, as well as the many special women in my life--my wife, daughter, mother, and many other family members and friends.  From bringing awareness to my colleagues at Genuine Parts Company, to raising funds from corporate and individual donors, to encouraging the women in my life to get regular mammograms--I am committed to improving outcomes for all.

This year I’m proud to help save more lives from breast cancer through the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. I pledge to wear pink throughout the month of October to bring additional awareness, as well as to make healthy lifestyle choices for my family and me to lower our risk. 

 

Please consider joining me in the fight against breast cancer today!

 

Why I Believe Real Men Wear Pink

Every day, the American Cancer Society is saving more lives from breast cancer than ever before!  By empowering women with free information and services, women may reduce their risk of breast cancer and detect it earlier.  Through generous donations, the American Cancer Society funds groundbreaking breast cancer research and works to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them. By tapping into the power of pink, Real Men Wear Pink has raised more than $40 million to fuel this research, a live 24/7 helpline, and so much more!

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.
