Every October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month in which people from across the world raise awareness about breast cancer and raise funds to help with research to eradicate the disease as well as help those currently diagnosed with breast cancer. The funds raised through the American Cancer Society also help place an emphasis on screening and early detection of breast cancer.
Apart from skin cancers, breast cancer is the most common cancer type in women. In 2018:
- About 268,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer have been diagnosed.
- About 63,960 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) have been diagnosed in women (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
This year, I am one of sixteen participants in Charlotte’s Real Men Wear Pink Campaign in conjunction with the American Cancer Society. For the month of October, we are raising money and awareness by wearing pink every day from October 1 through October 31. Over the past month, we have hosted fundraisers at local breweries and businesses and took part in the Making Strides Against Cancer walk in Charlotte, North Carolina.
This year, Charlotte’s Real Men Wear Pink fundraiser goal is $65,000, and we are so close to reaching that goal. If you would like to contribute to the effort, please visit the following link: http://main.acsevents.org/goto/kylefrost.
