Real Men Wear Pink

When I was invited to participate in the 2016 Real Men Wear Pink campaign, the reality of cancer struck me again. This time, it was looking in the eyes of my wife and daughters and dreaming ahead to the potential of having granddaughters and wondering, would they be touched by cancer? I count it a privilege to join forces with others in my community to help fund research that will move us closer to a cure and to a “world free from the pain and suffering of breast cancer.”
