American Cancer Society’s campaign, Real Men Wear Pink (RMWP)

begins October 1 and runs through October 31, 2019.  Dr. Kelly D. Ferrell, board certified radiologist at Breast Diagnostic Center, will participate in the 3rd annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign.  He will be competing against other men in our local community to raise breast cancer awareness and fundraise for a great cause.

Several years ago Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) was approached by the American Cancer Society

to partake in their new campaign, RMWP.  Dr. William C. Petty, Medical Director at BDC proudly accepted the challenge in the Fall of 2017.  Dr. Petty and his staff fundraised with energy and passion and wore a generous amount of pink attire during October, 2017.  The following year, Fall of 2018, Dr. Jay T. Jones picked up the baton from Dr. Petty to fundraise in the 2nd annual RMWP campaign.  Since the inception of RMWP, these two BDC radiologists have raised over $10,000 and wore a substantial amount of pink while united in their fight against breast cancer.

Real Men Wear Pink = Men Fighting Breast Cancer

This year, Fall of 2019, Dr. Kelly D. Ferrell, who specializes in breast imaging, will energetically grab the baton from Dr. Jones and participate in the 3rd annual Real Men Wear Pink campaign.  Dr. Ferrell, representing BDC, will be wearing pink every day during the month of October, help educate people about the importance of early screening and support the American Cancer Society.  To support Dr. Ferrell in his fundraising efforts  you can visit his RMWP webpage at: those in need of assistance, the ACS hotline is 1-800-227-2345 or visit for more information.
