Hooray for Theresa Larson’s answer to Joe Guzzardi and all the guys who complain about Pink October and breast cancer awareness. If not for all of that “fuss,” as some of those men call it, I and many a wife, mother, daughter, etc. would not be alive today.
So get checked early, do a self-exam and by all means wear pink. It’s the new power color. And if some of those ignorant, macho guys don’t like it, remind them that men can also get breast cancer. I sincerely hope they never have a loved one die of breast cancer, because then that awareness may be too little and too late.
The research that has been made possible through the fundraising efforts of the various foundations has saved many women from what used to be a death sentence to a chance of a cancer-free future.
