Going Pink for the Cause! October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

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 ShoresMore 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?
