I have been so impressed with this incredible organization since they started their journey. They are passionate about informing the public that breast cancer not only affects women but men as well. Through fundraising, internet and even a remarkable documentary (Pink and Blue) they have touched many lives and continue on that path. I am proud of this sister and brother who are not just survivors but use their experience to fight this terrible disease.

The brother and sister team of Harvey Singer and Vicki Singer Wolf have done an amazing job of bringing awareness and important information to men and women about the fact that men can have breast cancer too. They have traveled all over the country , created websites and were involved in a movie to bring invaluable information that has been up until recently, very difficult to find. Kudos to them both.

Harvey Singer and his sister Vicki do an outstanding job of highlighting the scourge of male breast cancer. Their philanthropy and commitment to this cause is impressive. I cannot commend them enough for their efforts. Harvey has traveled the country and appeared on numerous radio, tv shows and helped promote a documentary about the warning signs and treatment needed to beat this deadly, but under-publicized disease. Harvey is a hero!

Harvey and Vicki are two of the hardest working advocates to a cause that I've been exposed to. They are relentless and passionate in not only getting the word out, but also in taking the time to educate people on the real disease of male breast cancer and what to do regarding preventative measures, symptom recognition and providing assurances that its not a "closet disease" and being pro-active will not only help yourself, but will provide confidence in others.

I am very proud to say that i know the founders of HIS foundation. HIS and their website along with other events and that they participate in and their dedication to inform and educate on male breast cancer is unyielding. Everyone needs to understand it is not exclusive to women. HIS is helping spread that message and help provide families with the resources and information to cope with both male and female breast cancers. The members of HIS make themselves available to help anyone who reaches out for help. Congrats to HIS and what they are trying to do.

Awareness is the key when it comes to male breast cancer. H.I.S. does that and so much more.

To me the key word is awareness. Prior to H.I.S. like most other people I believed that breast cancer was a female issue. Cancer is a topic that comes up often in conversation and now I am able to steer my friends in a different direction.

I have several friends whose wives have been diagnosed with breast cancer. All of them found it quite easy to get information and support to assist them through their struggles fighting the disease. Recently however, I have been exposed to a hand full of men, some very close to me that were also diagnosed with BREAST cancer. Thankfully after learning about "HIS Breast Cancer Awareness" my friends were able to rely on this group of very supportive persons for information, direction and comfort. Without this organization my friends were lost in a "disease for women" with no support, no guidance and nobody to assist them in how to deal with this dreaded disease. HIS Breast Cancer Awareness not only has a fantastically designed and informative website but members of this organization make themselves readily available for support and direct communication enabling men to find the best alternatives to beat Male Breast Cancer.

In 2016 the American Cancer Society estimates that there will be about 2,600 new cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in males. With so many men out there not realizing that breast cancer can affect them, this organization has been great at promoting and brining awareness to the fact that men do get breast cancer. The HIS Breast Cancer Awareness website is full of great information and has some really fantastic resources. I recommend that any one looking for information on male breast cancer or genetic mutations check out this incredible organization and their website.

Yes...men can get breast cancer too, but most are unaware. The work that HIS does in educating and increasing awareness is so vital and important so that men know what to look for and how to proceed if there are concerns. Thank you HIS Breast Cancer Awareness for the important work that you do.

As a Pilates instructor to breast cancer survivors/thrivers, I was surprised when a male survivor came to our office. We have shared so many of our deepest thoughts and issues and Our breast friends group decided to go to a viewing of a movie that was out about male/female breast cancer. As a result of the movie, we became very well informed about the gene pool that makes some of us at higher/lesser risk, for breast and other cancers. I highly recommend HIS breast cancer for all the information they continue to provide, and for the amazing movie they put together. Our Pilates men/women love HIS Breast Cancer and so do I!

Here is a site and organization that has a great amount of information about Male Breast Cancer. They inform, educate, and bring awareness regarding breast cancer in men. This organization provides this valuable service to help men and their families cope with this terrible disease. I have personally experienced and seen this family behind this nonprofit working many hours to help others cope with this uncommon cancer. I personally support them and will continue to to help them get their message and help educate about this deadly disease.

I have learned so much from this organization. Because of HIS, our son got genetic testing to find out if he is a BRCA 1 or 2 carrier. I never would have thought to have this testing otherwise. We too, have a high incidence of Breast cancer in our family, and with the diagnosis of metastatic melanoma, want to have all our bases covered. So thank you for suggesting this test to us.

His Breast Cancer Awareness Inc is a wonderful organization who's mission is dedicated to bring awareness to the very real and potentially very deadly, but much less addressed disease, male breast cancer. It has been my honor and privilege to volunteer my time to this organization as they work tirelessly to provide valuable information, support and resources to those afflicted, their families as well as the public. I will continue to be a part of His Breast Cancer Awareness Inc's selfless and committed journey to the ultimate goal of a cure and eradication of male breast cancer and until that time, this organization forges ahead as an educator, informant, crusader and support system while bringing attention to the masses.

I've known Harvey Singer, founder of the HIS Breast Cancer Awareness organization for 25 years and the commitment and passion he continues to bring in his pursuit to educate and inform people about male breast cancer is remarkable. Truthfully, until Harvey was diagnosed and I began to learn more about male breast cancer, I had no idea that women didn't have the terrifying exclusivity on breast cancer. Two years ago, a very close family member of mine was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was then that I realized that until it hits close to home, most people (MEN!) are indifferent (including me) when it comes to doing the necessary "check-ups" that they should be performing as a preventative measure. I would encourage everyone to visit www.hisbreastcancer.org to learn more and to learn how you can help, whether its through a donation or simply passing the information along to family members, friends, colleagues and associates. The site provides a tremendous amount of insight and education on Male Breast Cancer and it is worth everyone's time. Spread the word!

HIS Breast Care Awareness has been wonderful at helping spread the word about male breast cancer. This organization has worked so hard to educate both men and women about breast cancer and the BRCA mutation that puts people at a higher risk of getting this disease.

I did not realize that men could get breast cancer! I did not realize that men have breasts! My friend had a lump in his breast and we found this charities website. It all made sense and this website guided us not only on how and where to begin, but what to expect. By having this organization available for support my friend was diagnosed early and I'm certain the outcome is much better then it could have been. Not only was the life of my friend preserved as well as his dignity but his children were tested for the BRCA gene mutation. Unfortunately they tested positive, fortunately from the education this website and organization provided us, along with their support by email and direct phone calls from their founders, I am certain the lives of my friends children, too were saved.

When we were looking for a male survivor to write about his own breast cancer experience for Surviving Cancer: Our Voices & Choices, it was difficult to find a patient who was willing to do so. Rich Loreti came forward because he was determined to encourage other men regarding early detection.
HIS is a very effective organization, which encourages dialogue and shares pertinent information. This is imperative because men often get to their doctors too late, at a stage when the cancer has already progressed too far.
HIS can and will save lives.

This organization is an amazing group of people who provide a service that has been almost non exisitant. I have a dear friend who miraculously found his own breast cancer and could find no information or anywhere to go for help. HIS was there for him providing much need support and information.

HIS Breast Cancer Awareness has reached people all over the world and has helped so many to know they are not alone with a diagnosis of male breast cancer. From South Africa, to Ireland, to the United States, men are diagnosed with breast cancer and are looking for a place to turn for more information and support. Whether it's due to genetic mutation, environment or other health related causes, men are often diagnosed after the disease is much further progressed. HIS Breast Cancer Awareness helps with prevention and education for an earlier diagnosis and is helping to save lives! Hope you'll visit the web site at www.hisbreastcancer.org to learn more.

When I was approaching 35 years of age, I had my first baseline mammogram since I had a maternal aunt who had breast cancer along with a mastectomy. At 36, my mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer and I was reminded that it was time for my annual mammogram. One month following my mother, I too was diagnosed with breast cancer. Over a span of eleven years I had 3 positive breast cancer diagnosis, 5 surgeries on one breast, centinal lymph node tested and was treated with radiation and Tamoxifen.
After my last bout, I decided to go for genetic testing and was diagnosed with the BRCA2 gene mutation. I then had a full hysterectomy due to a higher risk of developing ovarian cancer. Sharing this information with my husband, sons and brothers, at that moment it was obvious that all of our lives would change from this point forward. Although it is not "recommended" that my sons be tested for the gene until they are older and/or are ready to settle down and begin a family this does not mean we should ignore the obvious either. Having one of my brother's diagnosed with breast cancer and also test positive for the BRCA2 gene, as well as Prostate cancer 1.5 years later, Early detection through education is what will save lives! Male Breast Cancer is often diagnosed too late as no one is checking!
