Who we are?

Nancy E. Nick


Nancy promised her late father 23 years ago that she would tell the world that, " Men Get Breast Cancer Too!"

Together with our Board of Directors, Volunteers, Sponsors, Donors, and Bidders the world is hearing us loud and clear!

Nancy Nick founded the John W. Nick Foundation in 1995, in Vero Beach Florida in memory of her late father who succumbed to breast cancer at the age of 58, June 11, 1991.

Nancy is the author of Breast Cancer Awareness for Men and Women, 1999, and wrote the The E-100 Breast Care Book, 1996. These are the first breast cancer booklets to include male breast cancer.

1996, Nancy created the Pink and Blue Ribbon. We had the first ever seminar in 1996 and saved a mans life who was diagnosed with male breast cancer by Dr. Gardner.

October 20, 2012 The Sass Foundation Inc. for Medical Research presented Nancy the Albina Taddeo Humanitarian Award. They also presented her a signed Citation from Nassau County Office of the Executive.

The world is hearing us,"Men Get Breast Cancer Too." We have had the only information for men for decades. We have passed tens of thousands of life saving materials.
