NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- October marks National Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the American Cancer Society (ACS) in Nashville is hosting its 4th annual Real Men Wear Pink (RMWP) campaign throughout the entire month of October. 44 local leaders in Nashville have stepped up and committed to engage the community in the Society's mission to eliminate breast cancer. These individuals are using the power of wearing pink to draw attention to the cause, events, and social media to raise awareness and funds for the American Cancer Society's breast cancer initiatives.
