Men Get Breast Cancer Too!
When Vicki was diagnosed with breast cancer for the third time at age 47, she was finally offered genetic testing and learned she carried a mutation in the BRCA2 gene. When her brother Harvey learned there was a 50/50 chance he could be carrying the same mutation, he didn’t think too much about it. Two years later, he felt a lump in his breast and was diagnosed with breast cancer. 18 months later, he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. After experiencing how hard it was to find information and support related to breast cancer in men, Harvey and Vicki were driven to found HIS Breast Cancer. They are passionate about reframing breast cancer not as a woman’s disease but as a human disease that affects both men and women.
