According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 325,000 people will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2020. It’s the most common type of cancer, and while women make up the majority of the diagnoses, it affects both men and women. But, that doesn’t mean we need to accept these numbers, and that’s why TheeDigital is joining the fight!
Real Men Wear Pink
TheeDigital owner and president, Richard Horvath, is proud to be a part of Real Men Wear Pink of Central & Eastern NC. Founded by men who are dedicated to fighting breast cancer, RMWP is made up of community leaders who work to raise money for the American Cancer Society to help end breast cancer. Each year, the ACS saves thousands of lives by providing early detection and prevention services, funding for research, and patient support, and RMWP of Central & Eastern NC has raised over $500,000 for them in just four years.
So, how does it work?
Men from a wide array of backgrounds, including business owners, media professionals, and healthcare providers, are nominated (or nominate themselves) to join the drive. Past RMWP candidates often nominate new leaders in order to grow the drive and maximize the amount raised. Each man involved has a minimum goal of $2,500, but of course, there’s no limit on how much can be raised, and there’s even a bit of healthy competition among the community leaders involved to see who can raise the most.
A Note from TheeDigital President, Richard Horvath:
Why I Wear Pink
Breast cancer affects everyone – it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. That’s why I’m stepping up to fight breast cancer with all I have. Since I’m in a position to make a difference within my community, I believe I have an obligation to do so. By raising money and awareness through Real Men Wear Pink, I’m helping to save more lives from breast cancer.
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.
