Pink and Blue

By now you all have seen a wave of Pink thanks to Nancy Brinker and Susan G. Komen. It's amazing how much and where you see pink....on product wrappers in the grocery store, billboards, at sporting events, literally everywhere. That's awesome because it raises awareness and funding for research to find a cure for breast cancer.

My dream is to create a Blue wave equal in size to what we see in pink and the sooner the better.
We all know 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer and yet the awareness that 1 in 6 men will get prostate cancer is way too low. I intend to change that....and I'll need help, hopefully your help. How?

Start by telling a friend, brother, dad, coworker...let them know you know someone with prostate cancer and early detection via testing is needed. Urge them to get their PSA checked if they're 40 or older...urge them to 'tell a friend' and this wave will get 'viral' in terms of spreading the word.

Help by telling a friend. Every 19 minutes a man dies from prostate cancer and we can reduce this via early detection and testing.

Thanks for the help
