Why I Wear Pink
According to the American Cancer Society, 1 in 3 men and women have a risk of developing some type of cancer in their lifetime. 1 in 5 men and women risk dying from some form of Cancer. For a firefighter, those stats are much worse. Firefighters are 13 times more likely to develop cancer and 9 times for likely to die from cancer compared to the average person. This year I am teaming up with the Huntsville Firefighters Association to help fund research and stop this terrible disease.
Why I Support the American Cancer Society
Every day, the American Cancer Society is saving more lives from breast cancer than ever before. They’re helping people take steps to reduce their risk of breast cancer or find it early, when it’s easier to treat. They provide free information and services when and where people need it. They fund groundbreaking breast cancer research and they’re working to ensure access to mammograms for women who need them.
