and ultrasound, they found the mass. which time, i went directly down to penn, pennsylvania hospital, and it came cancer. the mass. and i immediately went through additional testing, the mri, and the p.e.t. scan, and three weeks later, i was having surgery. >> wow, what's the message that you want people to get out from breast cancer treatment and the importance of raising money for this cancer? >> well, what's very important is that men and women need to get tested. they need to have the mammographies, they need to do it annual. i know that it can be very scary, but we need to educate women and men that it's not just, you know, not just about being scared. you have to take that nervousness and go through it, get through it so that you can get the test. because early detection is key.
11:48 am
and fund-raising is important because we need to find a cure. we need to stop the cancer. i constantly am out there fund-raising with so many different avenues. and it's harder and harder each year, but it's so important. and it's the passion to get it done. >> carlos, tell us about your mother. >> my mom was diagnosed with breaster, dcis, which for all intents and purposes should be a very treatable cancer, but she was diagnosed at a later stage, at stage 3b. she fought it off successfully for a few years, but unfortunately, it came back a few years later. but she got to see me graduate from my undergrad, which was one of her big goals in her life. and -- >> beautiful picture. >> yeah, pure happiness, i like to say, in that picture. she was home to me. and unfortunately, she passed away a few years ago. so this komen mission, the work i do with komen, really hits
11:49 am
home for me. >> it's to honor your mother. >> yes. >> what's the message you have for men, specifically men? sons, husbands, you know, and those who are dealing with seeing a loved one going through cancer? >> this problem is a problem that we share with women, with our mothers, with our daughters, and men don't really realize this, but men can get breast cancer, too. about 1% of all cases of breast cancer are diagnosed in men. again, we share that responsibility to take this disease seriously, to support our loved ones in seeking the care and screening services that they need. >> i like that you say it's a shared responsibility. that's really apropos. there's still time to register for the race for the cure. it's happening this sunday, mother's day, at the philadelphia museum of art. openingmony begins at 7:00 a.m. the 5k run begins at 8:15, and the walk and run begins at 8:25
11:50 am
a.m. go to our website at or check out our nbc10 app. thank you very much. we wish you luck in your fund-raising and search for a cure. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you for coming in. and the way it looks now, cold front will be coming through sunday morning, and there is a chance of a shower. but it's not anything that would last for a long time. 53 and cloudy in philadelphia. we've got only 49 in some of the pennsylvania suburbs. lehigh valley, 52 degrees. some reports of a little bit of light rain, especially in allentown. let's see what the temperatures are like. there are actually some places in the 40s. may. middle of the day. fleetwood, 48 degrees. burks town, 49 degrees, and it's only 50 in bethlehem, easton, allentown itself.
11:51 am
walnut, 48 to 50 degrees in several places. as we take a look at the live radar, nothing around the philadelphia area, trenton down to wilmington. a couple showers up by allentown. obviously, the heavy stuff is southern delaware and into south jersey. it's moving to the northeast. and so it's going to stay wet in some of these areas, and that is including cumberland county, parts of cape may county, atlantic county getting it. the timing, galloway, 12:33, little egg harbor right around 1:00. that's some heavy rain and even some lightning. we have other areas of showers back to the west, so there are more threats for tomorrow. but especially on friday, and that's a pretty significant area, too. and what's going to be happen? some of these showers developing as we go into the early
11:52 am
afternoon. and lots of clouds. that area of white, that's just cloud cover. everywhere, across the area. tonight and into tomorrow, clouds, fog, maybe a little bit of drizzle. don't expect a whole lot of rain tomorrow, but could be a little bit of drizzle. then with the east wind intensifying, look at the rain moving in from the atlantic. east to west. that is not a good sign. if you want nice weather. late thursday night and into friday, that's when the worst weather is coming. the strongest winds. some coastal flooding at times of high tide, and it's going to be slow to move out of here for saturday even. there's friday at 11:00 a.m., raining all over the place, and maybe even cooler than it has been over the last couple of days. yeah, unseasonably. no doubt about that. the temperature not even getting to 60 degrees yesterday or today
11:53 am
or maybe the rest of the week in philadelphia. and you can see that on the seven-day forecast for your area coming up. and it's not looking great. now, for saturday, i now have at least some sunshine, chance of lingering showers. temperature warmer than next couple of days, but then also we're talking about a little below normal. that's for philly to lehigh valley, only 66. jersey shore, 60. on sunday, mother's day, look at the difference in atlantic city at the shore. 74 degrees. big jump there. and a smaller jump elsewhere. so generally speaking, the weather is nicer on sunday than on saturday. but even saturday is going to be a whole lot better than friday. friday is going to be miserable. and then there's saturday. partly sunny skies, chance of some showers. chance of that morning shower on
11:54 am
sunday. but most of the day should be dry. monday, we really start to dry out. look at these temperatures. getting into the 80s tuesday, wednesday, and possibly into thursday. we'll be right back.
11:55 am
11:56 am
well, thanks for watching nbc10 news at 11:00.
11:57 am
i'm vai sikahema. for glenn "hurricane" schwartz and all of us here at nbc10, have a great day. pet moments are beautiful, unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. flonase is the first and only nasal spray approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. when we breathe in allergens our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one.
11:58 am
more complete allergy relief. flonase. 6>1 changes everything.
