Breast cancer is a common and devastating disease affecting many Americans and their loved ones each year. This October, we are supporting the American Cancer Society by wearing pink every Wednesday and fighting back against breast cancer throughout the month.
Our owner and Physical Therapist, Todd Kruse, shares his motivation behind his participation in this event. “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 am 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.
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.”
We urge you all to schedule your annual check-ups and voice your concerns with your doctor if you feel or sense anything unusual. If you would like to get active and support the “Real Men Wear Pink” campaign or American Cancer Society as a whole, you can head to their website to learn more.
