Mon Health physicians, staff take part in ‘Real Men Wear Pink’ for breast cancer awareness

Two Mon Health physicians, one employee and a board member will be sporting pink during the entire month of October to bring attention to breast cancer.

The men will be dedicating their wardrobe to the color pink during October as they are participants in the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. According to the American Cancer Society, Real Men Wear Pink gives men a leadership role in the fight against breast cancer. Community leaders around the nation use the power of pink to raise awareness and money for the American Cancer Society’s breast cancer initiatives, including innovative research, patient services and education around screenings and risk reduction.

Dr. William McBee, a gynecologic oncologist with the Mon Health Cancer Center, Dr. William Burns, a general surgeon with Mon Health Surgical Care, Kyle Warner, an employee at Mon Health Stonewall Jackson Memorial Hospital, and Don Robinson, a Mon Health Medical Center board member, are all candidates raising money for the Real Men Wear Pink campaign.

Real Men Wear Pink for Breast Cancer Dr. McBee

Why I Wear Pink: Breast cancer affects everyone – even my grandmother was a breast cancer survivor, it doesn’t matter if you’re a man or a woman. That’s why I’m stepping up to fight breast cancer with all I have. Since I’m in a position to make a difference within my community, I believe I have an obligation to do so. By raising money and awareness through Real Men Wear Pink, I’m helping to save more lives from breast cancer. As a gynecologic oncologist, I cross paths with many women fighting breast cancer patients and other gynecologic cancers. Their battle affects me and my family every day.
