Real Men Wear Pink Playing Football


DECATUR- Most likely a majority of Americans know someone with breast cancer or know someone who has had breast cancer.

Health officials at HSHS St. Mary's Hospital in Decatur promoted breast cancer awareness to the younger generation hoping to spark change from the football fields to their homes.

It's not just about real men wearing pink, Eisenhower High School football players learned the importance behind the color.

Thirteen teams plus Millikin University football players are wearing pink on Fridays this year. Valerie Jordan, the Director of Oncology at HSHS St. Mary’s said, while they are separate teams, they are actually one team fighting breast cancer.
