How men are getting involved in this year's Making Strides for Breast Cancer

Posted at 1:35 PM, Oct 16, 2020

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, and every year Fox 13 teams up with the American Cancer Society for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer events.

While things are different this year, there is still a reason to get involved! The money made goes toward research and resources for breast cancer patients and survivors. Some of those local services include the Hope Lodge and a 24/7 hotline.

Amy Giuliano with the American Cancer Society says 2020 has been an awful year for many, but it shouldn't be an excuse to put off getting your mammogram. Screening saves countless lives from breast cancer every year.

And it's not just women who are affected. Men can get breast cancer too. And, they're big cheerleaders for their wives, mothers, sisters, daughters and friends who are going through breast cancer.

That's why Mark Jensen got involved in the Real Men Wear Pink campaign. He's raising money and awareness to make a difference within his community.
