Joseph Baar selected as Komen Pink Tie Guy 2010

May 25, 2010

Congratulations to Dr Joseph Baar on being selected as one of the 2010 Komen Northeast Ohio Pink Tie Guys. This special initiative was developed to get more men involved in the breast cancer movement. Men are often the people supporting breast cancer survivors through diagnosis, treatment and beyond. In addition, over 2000 men are diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States each year.

The eight prominent businessmen and celebrities are selected to be Pink Tie Guys represent the one in eight women who will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. At Komen, we realize the smallest act can make a powerful impact. By simply wearing a pink tie, you may prompt a conversation that could literally save a life! Whether it be at a board meeting, social affair, or sporting event, this symbolic yet eye catching accessory may help others become proactive in learning the risk factors and how early detection is the best defense against breast cancer.
