Piedmont Newnan launches Real Men Wear Pink campaign

NEWNAN, Ga. – As part of its commitment to the fight against breast cancer, Piedmont Newnan Hospital has enlisted the help of 10 prominent men in the Coweta County community to help spread awareness about breast cancer, the second leading cause of cancer-related death in the U.S. The campaign is designed to increase the number of women who take preventative action in the fight against the disease.

These 10 men have agreed to become the names and faces in the battle against breast cancer, which affects one in eight women in the U.S. They’ll take part in community events such as a “Pink Out” night at Newnan High School on Friday, October 24, all while leading by example by asking the women in their lives to get screened for breast cancer.

While the campaign focuses on getting men to wear pink and encourage breast cancer screenings, anyone in the community can take part and support this important cause via social media. All are invited to take a photo by themselves, or with friends, relatives or co-workers dressed in pink during the month of October and email it to socialmedia@piedmont.org, tweet it while tagging @piedmonthealth using the hashtag #RealMenWearPink or by posting the photo to Instagram while tagging @piedmonthealthcare and using the hashtag #RealMenWearPink.
