I often say moving to northeast Wisconsin was one of the best decisions I’ve made. It has been a great place to raise my five boys, make a career and a home. There is a real partnership between the public and business community here and I am proud to be a member of both. Good corporate citizenship is important, that’s one of the reasons I was excited to participate in The Real Men Wear Pink campaign supporting northeast Wisconsin’s American Cancer Society (ACS).
Over the years, several of my friends, clients and employees have been affected by cancer. Research from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services tells us that 1 in 8 women will get breast cancer at one point in their lives.
Because of the donations given to the ACS, they can continue their important work. Here’s just a few examples of what they’ve accomplished so far.
- $59M invested in breast cancer research grants
- 5M free rides have been provided to treatment
- 40K patients guided through the complex health care system by ACS patient navigators
- 5M breast cancer patients were provided one-on-one support services
When I was approached to be one of the community leaders representing The Real Men Wear Pink campaign, I was glad for the chance to give back. I believe businesses and business owners need to have a collaborative partnership with their community. And, this campaign is a great example of what we can achieve when we work together for an important cause.
This community has been my home for over 25 years. I’m grateful the American Cancer Society is working to attack cancer from every angle and make our area an even better place to work and live.
