Breast Cancer Now's flagship fundraiser, wear it pink, will see thousands of people across the United Kingdom adding a splash of pink to their outfits on Friday, October 20 to raise funds for breast cancer research.

During the month of October, Tommy Spina will be wearing something pink every single day. His wife is a five-year survivor of breast cancer. The campaign includes prominent business owners and personalities from around Birmingham, including George McMillan, the owner and executive chef of FoodBar in Cahaba Heights.

Dudney, a Hoover resident and dentist at Alabaster Aesthetic Dentistry, is one of 25 participants in the American Cancer Society's local Real Men Wear Pink campaign.

Rhone said he chose to participate because of the impact cancer has had in friends' and families' lives.

"Barbara was a dear friend and encourager".

When Pat Perez learned she had breast cancer in 2010 she was devastated, even thought she was going to die.

At the time Perez was diagnosed in March 2010, her mother had been telling her for months to listen to her body, go to the doctor and get checked for breast cancer.

Learning she had the disease and what happened during that time "all kind of flows together" into a series of memorable events that continue to guide her, she says now. "I'm asking everyone to join me in donating to the American Cancer Society", Rhone said.

The campaign kicked off on September 28 and will wrap up on October 26 with a party recognizing the Pink Man of the Year, who raises the most money.
