I Heart Faces-PINK Week!

e_MG_7355 trevor PINK entry

Over 200,000 women are diagnosed annually with breast cancer, so maybe 1,700 seems like a really small number of men. But if it’s YOUR man; your husband, your dad, your son, then it’s not insignificant. Women aren’t the only ones who need to be aware of the symptoms of breast cancer; check out this link and make sure that the men in your life know what to look for.
And don’t forget to visit I Heart Faces and check out all of the Pink entries in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I remember last year’s entries; some of them brought me to tears, while others made me laugh. But the power of the picture certainly helped to make me more aware. And many thanks to my handsome model, who knows that real men DO wear pink!

    Pam, when we went to suvivors day at St.Jude a few years ago, the main speaker was a MAN who was dx with breast cancer!! I was shocked to hear those stats.

    So glad you brought this fact out.

  8. During this past year of my own breast cancer treatment, I’ve often thought of what a man must face going through this experience. Thanks so much for bringing attention to a not-so-well-known disease.

    And the picture? Fabulous.

  18. What a great picture! And I had no idea that 1700 men are diagnosed with breast cancer each year. Doesn’t sound like a small number to me, especially when most people don’t think about men and breast cancer together at all. Wow…

  19. Great photo! Thanks for sharing that info too. I think most people automatically assume women are the only ones that have to worry but we should all be concerned!
