Team Shakas is one of the groups that will participate in the event, as team member Shea Blastow tells the news source.
"This is the first year that Team Sh?kas will participate in the Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure," said Blastow. "Through our participation in this event, I know we are making an impact on the breast cancer movement. ...The Susan G. Komen 3-Day for the Cure is challenging, but the opportunity to have an impact is enormous."
Men are much less susceptible to breast cancer than women, according to the American Caner Society. More than 200,000 women are diagnosed with the illness each year while about 2,000 men have the same diagnosis. Men should check for lumps in their breast sand not ignore them if they find abnormalities. Women should have yearly mammograms if they are over the age of 40, according to the ACS.
