Challenge Title: REAL Men Wear PINK!
Hostess: Dina K. (aka dini)
Date: Monday, October 3rd, 2011
It’s encouraging to see men getting involved in promoting breast cancer awareness by wearing pink during the month of October. They're reminding men and women to talk to their doctors about breast cancer and the importance of the yearly mammogram. Breast cancer affects every one of us somehow. (And though the occurrence of breast cancer is 100x greater in women, did you know that men can get breast cancer too?)
In honor of the men who stand behind the women in their lives…
Create a masculine card with PINK on it somewhere.
