The Sports Animal’s Tyler Ivens of The Starting Lineup is raising money for Real Men Wear Pink! Donate to Tyler’s campaign here.
Real Men Wear Pink is a distinguished group of community leaders who are determined to raise money and support for the American Cancer Society’s Mission.
Why I Wear Pink:
I lost my step-mother to breast cancer on March 22, 2014. Losing her has left an empty space in my heart. Therefore, raising awareness and fundraising has become a passion of mine over the past 5 years.
In addition to my step-mother, my best friend is a lukemia suvivor. Knowing I’ve done my part to help fight for the people that are still here, and for the people who can no longer fight, is something I will always take pride in.
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.
