Our family is committed to the fight against breast cancer. It began about 10 years ago when a dear friend was diagnosed. Then another. Then a cousin. Amazingly, we’ve never lost anyone.
I credit the incredible advances in awareness, early detection, and improved treatment. So does the American Cancer Society. Deaths from breast cancer have been declining since 1989, but we have a long way to go. One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lives.
My wife and I have three wonderful children, two of which are girls. We both have sisters and mothers. That’s seven women who are incredibly close to us. The likelihood that one of them will suffer from breast cancer is far too high to ignore.
We’ve raised money for breast cancer research through the Race for the Cure, the 3-Day, and of course the Tubbs Romp to Stomp.
