Coaches vs. Cancer Basket “Ball”!

Real Men Wear Pink gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Community leaders around the nation use the power of pink to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives.

Making Strides has always been more than just a walk, it’s a movement. Because of the pandemic, how we unite and fight back this fall may look different but our passion to end breast cancer is the same.

Relay For Life may look different this year, but now more than ever, cancer patients and researchers need your help to sustain the fight against cancer. Our lifesaving mission has been threatened by suspended events and a decrease in donations, so your support is urgently needed to continue research, patient programs and cancer screening.

“I do believe Michael Scott did it better, but here’s my version. For 6 weeks every Day, I was locked down in this mask and zapped for 10 minutes. I lay there with mouth guards in, only able to breathe through tiny holes, trying not to swallow while I meditate as Jimmy Buffett is playing through the headset. This treatment was morbid. It was hard, and it pushed me to a place I never thought I would see. I chose to keep going and I fought...I FOUGHT to make it all 6 weeks. I kept this mask as a reminder for how strong I am. How much I have overcome. I have a long ways to go, but I will always chose to keep going. 

Trust me guys, wearing a face mask to Target or Trader Joe’s is nothing to complain about, I say that with the most love” -Jamie
May 1 marks the beginning of Mental Health Awareness Month. In partnership with @cdphp , we will be bringing you information of support we offer, signs to look out for, and the importance of why mental health should be talked about. 

Cancer does not just affect your body, it can also affect your mind and many people will experience significant changes to their emotional health. We encourage you to learn more at www.cancer.org/treatment.html

Many patients, especially those with limited resources, must overcome numerous hurdles to access timely, high-quality cancer care. No one should be disadvantaged in their fight against cancer because of how much money they make, the color of their skin, their sexual orientation, their gender identity, their disability status, or where they live.

Thanks to partners like M&T Bank we will continue to fight for everyone to have the ability to benefit from the advances in research, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Continue to learn more at cancer.org/healthequity.
