I've been working with the Upstate NY chapter of the Komen association for the past few years, advocating for them to help raise awareness that ,if you have breasts (and who doesn't) you're subject to breast cancer. As a member of the malebreastcancercoalition.org, I got permission from Komen to set up a coalition booth at Komen's annual "More Than Pink" walk this spring. Covid put the kibosh to that! In the meantime they did send me a new brochure focusing on MBC , with some links exclusively for men. BC.org gave me permission ( thanks moderators) to post it in this forum and I hope it is both encouraging and helpful.
