I wanted to be involved as a Pink Tie Guy to show my personal and professional commitment to Women’s health, including the challenges of diagnosing, treating and curing Breast cancer. As an active participant in this challenge I hope to invigorate my friends and associates to join me in supporting the Susan G. Komen Foundation. Proudly wearing a pink tie should initiate dialogue with others about how to get involved as we prepare for “Laugh for The Cure”!
