Following are actual quotes from other female models who participated with Michael and me in the Stepping Out To Celebrate Life annual runway fashion show gala in 2013:

We all need to help make men’s breast cancer a known fact. I have asked my sons to make regular self exams. No man should have to go through what Eric did!

Eric and Michael you are both real men !!!!!! I will support men’s awareness of breast cancer totally!

You were wonderful guys that made everyone more aware of how it affects the male gender. I applaud you both for your roll in the show — without you the leather scene would have been dull!!!!!! Without both of you the group would not have been whole!
