Jan 29, 2007 at 11:37 AM Are you a survivor of breast cancer? No Has our site helped you? If so, how? Raising awareness Comments:Hi there, I am a training journalist in the UK and am creating a documentary to try and raise awareness about this. I just wanted to say that this is an uphill struggle all the way, and it's thanks to people like yourselves and others who can share their experiences about this that it is at all possible. I'm not sure about the differences in the situations in the UK and the US, but the only way we can raise awareness and improve things is for people to keep speaking up. Here in England there is no awareness, no support and no resources available, and I can't understand why our NHS doesn't do more. So well done on the site, it's a great source. If anyone would like to tell me about their experiences, and talk about issues that need addressing, please get in touch. And keep up the good work.
April 07, 2007 at 06:31 PM Are you a survivor of breast cancer? No Has our site helped you? If so, how? Yes Comments: My dear uncle, who was like a second father to me, passed away Jan 6th 2007, after a 5 year battle with breast cancer. Looking back he had the classic symptoms seen in women but was delayed in being diagnosed being a male.
I feel some guilt about this being a nurse. I have been a nurse for 15 yrs and never knew a man could get breast cancer, it was never taught in nursing school, not have i ever encounter a male pt with breast cancer. I am ashamed and embarrassed with the limited education that is provided to not just health health care professionals but also the general public.
My uncle use to get so upset during breast cancer awareness month as all the material was about women,never once in 5 yrs did hear a story or education about men. This is such as tragedy. It is also a shame that no health care provider ever informed my family of this foundation or any foundation about male breast cancer, all they were ever told about was the american cancer society, which does very little for men.
Perhaps through us, the loved ones of survivors, we can make a difference. I feel we can not sit back and let this mist justice of men occur any longer. I applaued this foundation and anyone who is fighting to bring about change in education on breast cancer. keep up the great work. I love you Uncle Billy and miss you very much.... Holli Nigh

If so, how? my husband passed away at 45 in 1990 Comments: since my husband passed away February, 1990, i have tried to get the American cancer society to add just one line at the bottom that MEN CAN ALSO GET BREAST CANCER! as you know to no avail. i am very open about his illness. if i can help anyone i'd be more then glad to help support you. my husband was diagnosis ed at 41years and passed on at 45. we did have a quality of life off and on, even traveled on vacation with our 4 young children for the first 3 1/2 years. he was a fighter and determined not to let his illness interfere in our lives.i would love to help the foundation in any way i can. i hope you will get in touch with me. thank you Carole
June 29, 2007 at 08:41 PM Are you a survivor of breast cancer? Yes Has our site helped you? If so, how? Yes Comments:Your site has helped in the fact that it is nice to see an Organization that recognizes that Men too get Breast Cancer. I found my Lump one afternoon while showering. I'm 42 years old.The bad thing was I did not do anything the 1st time I felt it. Finally weeks later I told my Mother about the lump, (she is an ex-Nurse). She said we need to get you to a Doctor. I went to a Local Clinic where they did a X-Ray and Sonogram and said you need to go to a Hospital. I went to a Local Hospital to have a Lumpectomy and when we (My Parents and me) found out it was Cancerous we decided to transfer to Johns Hopkins for further treatment.
They had to give me a Mastectomy and took a single Lymph Node out of my arm. I was told I have to undergo Chemo and because of the size of the tumor slightly over 5cm I will have to have Radiation as well. I'm fortunate I have a Great Support Team, My Parents,all my Relatives, Co-Workers and Many Friends!!!!!!!!!!!! Take care and feel free to Contact me. Walt

Raising awareness Comments: I am a UK breast cancer reseacher who has recently started a multi-centre large scale study of biomarker expression in male breast cancer. This type of study has been sorely lacking due to the small numbers of cases available to study from any one centre. I was delighted to find out about the Nick Foundation at the recent San Antonio Breast Cancer Foundation and hope my research can help identify biomarkers which may be associated with male breast cancer and which in the long term could help inform treatment protocols.

He was in remission for 4 years and 8 months. They found a tumor in his neck. He went through the process of chemo and radiation again. By the time he died, it had spread to his bones, chest cavity and so on. He died on Sept. 18, 2003. We buried him on his 53rd Bday. Sept 22, 2003.

Oct 11, 2007 at 08:18 AM Are you a survivor of breast cancer? My father is Has our site helped you? If so, how? Yes- reading other people's stories Comments: My father just had a radical mastectomy on Monday. He is 51 years old. He is healing well so far. This site has given me (his daughter) information and what to possibly to expect for future treatments. This being breast cancer awareness month, hopefully people will realize that this is a people disease, not just for women, and that men shouldn't be embarrased to request treatment. Best of luck to everyone affected by this conditon.

Oct 04, 2007 at 09:33 PM Are you a survivor of breast cancer? yes Has our site helped you? If so, how? yes, encouraging me to continue to educate about male bc Comments: My name is Shanna and I am 35 year old female breast cancer survivor. Breast cancer has claimed more than a breast from me though. My husband was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 30 and passed away in July 2006 at the young age of 34. He spent the entire time of his battle with cancer educating about male breast cancer. Television interviews, newspapers, etc. I get so frustrated when breast cancer awarness excludes men. Breast cancer took my best friend, my love, my MAN. I will continue to educate others re: male breast cancer...I know that is what my husband would do! He was not embarrassed about the fact that he had a "women's disease". This disease is no respector of persons...male or female!!! I pray for a cure, I don't want our children to have to ever face this disease! Thank you for your efforts in educating others as well! In Christ Alone, Shanna Smith, Alabama
