Farhan Naqvi, managing partner of Naqvi Injury Law, has been selected to represent the American Cancer Society (ACS) in its annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign. Real Men Wear Pink officially kicks off on August 16 and leads up to the ACS Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walk on October 28 at Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa.
“I’m honored to be selected for this unique program that highlights men’s involvement in the fight against breast cancer,” said Naqvi. “As we now know, breast cancer affects both men and women of all ages and backgrounds. My firm has long supported the fight against breast cancer and we look forward to expanding our participation with Real Men Wear Pink.”
During the campaign, Naqvi is raising money to aid in the fight against breast cancer. “I appreciate the ongoing support we have from friends and fans of the firm, and invite you to donate to my campaign online at http://bit.ly/RealMenWearPinkNaqvi. Thank you for supporting men and women in Southern Nevada affected by breast cancer…we are truly powerful when we come together for a common goal.”
Real Men Wear Pink is a national initiative that was created in 2014 to highlight the important role men play in the fight against breast cancer. “While women are certainly diagnosed with breast cancer more often, men are also at risk and are important caregivers to women in their lives who are fighting it,” said Josiah LaRow, community development manager for ACS Southern Nevada. “The men who are selected to participate in Real Men Wear Pink are influencers and community leaders who can both raise funds and raise awareness.”
LaRow said ACS Southern Nevada hopes to raise $100,000 in this year’s Real Men Wear Pink campaign. “We have already seen almost $20,000 in donations and the campaign hasn’t officially kicked off yet,” he said.
Naqvi was selected as one of this year’s Real Men Wear Pink honorees because of his community leadership, according to LaRow. “He is a pillar in the community. You can’t go anywhere without seeing or hearing what he is doing in our community. He was also a Gold winner for Best of Las Vegas,” said LaRow. “What better person is there than someone who is well respected and well recognized to help us get the word out?”
Statewide, ACS expects approximately 2,180 women to be diagnosed with breast cancer this year. More than 266,000 women and 2,500 men will be diagnosed throughout the country this year. “Breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed form of cancer in women, behind skin cancer,” said LaRow. “Raising awareness and funds are critical to getting us closer to a cure.”
