Along with many others in the Active Rain community, I have "gone pink" in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Interestingly enough, my wife had her check-up/exam this morning, so what better time than now? After all, I am secure enough in my masculinity to wear pink.
Here is a link to the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month site: http://www.nbcam.com/
Also, you can visit the Susan G. Komen Foundation website for information on prevention, treatment, and the continued search for a cure: http://www.komen.org/
Locally, the "Race for the Cure" is taking place in Austin on November 4, 2007 at Auditorium Shores: More Info on the Race Here They need runners, volunteers, and donations!
While I have not been directly impacted by breast cancer within my family, we have had several friends with the illness, and my mother-in-law is a three-time cancer survivor!
Please consider donating of your time, money, or resources to assist in fighting this devastating illness.
If you are a member of Active Rain, and you would like to change your pic to pink in support of this cause, please visit Sarah Cooper's post here if you need some help: Need A Little Help Going Pink?
