Why be a Pink Tie Guy
Himat wants to make a difference in the fight against breast cancer because of the impact it has had on his family, friends and neighbors. They are fortunate to have friends and family in this field for consultations and care, plus access to medical insurance. Yet there are many un/underserved women and men without such resources. Himat wants to make a difference in their lives. His wife has been actively involved in raising money for breast cancer research and encouraged him to use his resources to help make a difference.
