Real Men Wear Pink is an American Cancer Society (ACS) campaign in which community leaders raise breast cancer awareness and funds to support life-saving research and resources for patients and their families. Women do not need to die from breast cancer — their lives can be saved. Women of color, in particular, die from breast cancer at higher rates than White women, and breast cancer is usually found later in women of color than in their White counterparts.
