A Moving Breast Cancer Story

This is an article I just read today about a husband and wife cancer researchers, both of whom were diagnosed with breast cancer. It moves you to think of the irony of the situation where the disease affects those trying to cure it.

Also I had never known about male breast cancer until recently, it is rare but also dangerous due to both physiological as well as sociological reasons. I feel it is important to create awareness about this. As women, we should be quite well aware of the monthly breast self-exam. Here is a web MD link I dug up:

I found another link for men, I think the important men in your lives would benefit from it.
