#MarciDidItAs a son and older brother of two young women and countless female acquaintances, I felt it would be silly of me not to learn more about breast cancer awareness. Marcia Stewart, a good friend of mine who is a talented hair stylist and wig maker in Miami has started a campaign promoting Breast Cancer Awareness in the month of October.

Her campaign involves awarding deserving participants with a full day of beauty which includes but not limited to a custom wig designed by her. I applaud her in taking the initiative to contribute her efforts to a cause which is estimated to have over 231,840 new invasive breast cancer cases for women and 2,350 for men in 2015.

To support her campaign go to: Booster.com/MarciDidIt and she has also included the hashtag #MarciDidIt for social media site support as well.

If you have a cause that you are supporting, do not hesitate to let me know. Knowledge is power.

Andre Berto and Floyd Mayweather during media day and weigh-in on September 11, 2015.

Andre Berto vs Floyd Mayweather on September 12 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas, Nevada.

Time and time again, entertainers (sports/media/and etc) are tasked with the obligatory assignment of representing their neighborhood, state, country or race. As a fellow Haitian-American, I understand the reasoning behind making Andre Berto another candidate. However, no man or woman should be given that title because of the scrutiny that is bestowed upon you if you f%$k up. From Orenthal James “Juice” Simpson to Arnold Schwarzenegger, we all have witnessed that sometimes they do not live up to our praise and admiration. As a boxer, Andre Berto isn’t the greatest I have seen but overall his attitude is that of many boxers in the peak of their careers. Tonight, I want to see a complete fight and not waste a moment of my time wishing he got another chance.

To bring anyone up to speed about the boxer Andre Berto, here we go. He competed as an olympian representing the caribbean island of Haiti in 2004. His professional record currently stands at 33 fights; 30 wins; 23 wins by KO and 3 losses. From the fights I have seen, he should have a good chance of going 12 rounds in his fight with Floyd Mayweather in Las Vegas tonight.  In my opinion, Andre Berto should be advised not to go hard early like he does in most of his fights because it will not work with Floyd.

In the end, win, lose, or draw I like both fighters and will not feel any more or less about Berto as a representation of what Haiti has to offer in boxers or entertainers for that matter. Make your family proud Andre Berto. “LET’S GET READY TO RUMBLE”!
