Pink Products for Breast Cancer Awareness Month: NKOTB Tank
New Kids On the Block are back (and better than ever if you ask me) and every girl (well, i guess...now we're...women), ages 25-35, is ecstatic (at least i know i am). what's even better is their support in the fight against breast cancer and finding a cure.
band member Danny Wood lost his mother to the disease.
"a lot of the women coming to the shows need to be aware of early detection. they’re in that age from 25-35 where they need to get their first exams," Danny tells PEOPLE. "that was the problem for my mother. by the time she found out, it was too late- and i don’t want that to happen to anyone else when it could be prevented."
the tank is being sold for $35, with all proceeds supporting Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
Danny, who chose the charity says, "they’re the best foundation i've worked with. i've done their races in the past and i know it’s something my mom would have wanted."
