Florida Cancer Specialists (FCS) is excited to announce that FCS physician, Dr. Raul E. Storey, was nominated to participate in the 2018 American Cancer Society Real Men Wear Pink Campaign! Each Real Men Wear Pink participant accepts a fundraising challenge and will compete to be the top fundraiser among his peers. Throughout October, they will encourage community members to take action in the fight against breast cancer.
“In addition to wearing pink and raising awareness about breast cancer, these men will be raising funds to help the American Cancer Society attack cancer from every angle and save more lives from breast cancer,” said Jenny Davis, Community Development Manager for the American Cancer Society. “Funds raised help us save lives from breast cancer through early detection and prevention, innovative breast cancer research, and patient support.”
Florida Cancer Specialists physician, Dr. Raul E. Storey, stated, “I’m excited to show my support, raise awareness and make a difference, not only for my patients, but also for the community that I live and work in. Every day, the American Cancer Society is saving more lives from breast cancer than ever before.”
FCS CEO, Brad Prechtl, MBA, said, “As the past Florida Chair of American Cancer Society’s CEO’s Against Cancer, I am proud that Florida Cancer Specialists will have three physicians within the local community participating in the 2018 Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Florida Cancer Specialists’ commitment and dedication to the American Cancer Society is an inspiration to all and we feel fortunate to partner in our mission to save lives from cancer.”
Dr. Bill Harwin, FCS President & Founder, “Florida Cancer Specialists’ physicians passion and commitment to help eradicate this disease is reflective of our entire organization. As the field of oncology has evolved over the past few decades, we have had tremendous breakthroughs in our knowledge and understanding of cancer – and, as physicians, we anticipate even greater advances in the future.”
