Relay For Life of Napa Valley 2018

Put Cancer Down

MEN CAN GET BREAST CANCER

This year our team is again dedicating our efforts in memory of Joe Tomlinson. We had several computer problems last year an didn't feel we were able to give this important issue the attention it deserved as well as creating the fitting memorial Joe deserves. Like so many others, Joe didn't realize that men could get breast cancer. Consequently, his cancer was not discovered early. Joe fought valiently, butlost his 4 year fight with breast cancer this past March.

Breast Cancer in Mendoes not get much attention. As I talked to people about our team's focus this year I was surprised to learn how many people thought that breasr cancer struck only women. WRONG! It's not as common in men but it kills none the less. It is also more likely to be caught at a later stage in men. New research funded by the American Cancer Society seems to indicate that men's breast cancer reacts differently to treatment from women's breat cancer.

We will be distributing information all during Relay about this overlooked killer at our camp site. Be sure to stop by to get information that could save your life.

Please join our team or make a donation to fight cancer. But whatever you do, stop by to get life saving information about Men's Breast Cancer.
