Real Men Wear Pink at United Hospital Center

This October, the Cecil B. Highland, Jr. and Barbara B. Highland Cancer Center at UHC has joined the American Cancer Society’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign to help save lives from breast cancer.

All male, medical professionals with the Cecil B. Highland, Jr. and Barbara B. Highland Cancer Center will wear pink to show support and raise awareness and funds for this important cause.

In the U.S., breast cancer is the second most common type of cancer among women after skin cancer.

In West Virginia alone, breast cancer makes up almost 25% of all female cancers.

It has been proven that when communities and organizations come together to fight breast cancer, great things happen.

According to the American Cancer Society®, the Real Men Wear Pink movement has tapped into the power of pink and has raised more than $6.5 million to support the American Cancer Society’s mission to save lives from breast cancer.
