When Lucas Parsons, a quality manager at Klean Kanteen, hears the statistic that 1 of every 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, he thinks of his lovely wife and his adorable 1 ½-year-old daughter, Eisley Jayne. And he is unquestionably driven to take action.
That’s why he’s joined the inspiring Climb Against the Odds Team. “I have joined a team comprised of women and men from across the country who seek to stop this disease before it starts.”
“Tying a pink ribbon on my car and supporting the effort to find a cure seems like the easiest and most obvious action,” Parsons said. But working to simply cure breast cancer will not change the odds. “A cure merely accepts the risks and requires those diagnosed to undergo the harsh medication and radiation treatments most likely to initiate remission.”
“The Breast Cancer Fund provides us the opportunity to take immediate and preventative action against the potential causes of breast cancer, thereby improving the odds for all our loved ones,” Parsons said.
