Nicholas Harris, founder of the effects company Catalinbread, is releasing a limited edition of four of his company’s pedals in a pink color scheme to commenmorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Each pedal will be signed by Harris and numbered; he will make 25 of each and 50 percent of the sale from each will go toward his goal of raising $5,000 to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation of Oregon/SW Washington.
“In the late ’80s, my grandfather was diagnosed with a form of cancer that sometimes even doctors don’t realize is possible for a male to get – breast cancer,” said Harris. “It was a shock, but luckily my grandfather had some of the best healthcare available. He was able to find a doctor who could perform the mastectomy. He has lived a full life since then, cancer-free, and my family has been blessed with his presence.
“Fast forward a quarter-century, there is still no cure. Nearly every electronics device you could fit into the trunk of your car back then is an app on a smart phone, but still no cure. Many people have had their lives completely changed in this time. And not everybody is fortunate to have the healthcare that my grandfather had available to him.”
