I've found that most of the men(and women)who have heard about my case were unaware of MBC. I didn't know myself until I saw a TV show which had a character with MBC. I've since had a mastectomy and just finished four cycles of AC with only minor side effects. The notes from other patients here are very encouraging. Thanks for your website and keep spreading the word! from the chemo.

CanadaDate: Sunday, January 30, 2000 at 18:52:02Comments:In the last couple of months I received a letter from my union, the Health Employees Union of British Columbia saying that there seemed to be an unusually high instance of breast cancer in women at my workplace, an extended care facility, in Kamloops. The letter bothered me the way it was worded in that the letter made it sound like this was a womans problem. It's not!!! Men have breasts too so it's not a womans problem or a mans problem but a human problem. Doug McKee

It doesn't seem fair. Your book is great and so is the guest book. Keep up the good work. Men need to know.

     Name: Linda Steele Salt Lake City, Utah U.S.A.Date: Thursday, February 17, 2000 at 04:01:50Comments:The University of Utah, department of Genetic Epidemiology is currently researching male breast cancer. In 1994, our department in collabooration with others isolated the BRCA1 gene and located the BRCA2 gene. In 1996, the BRCA2 gene was isolated. A large majority of families containing both male and female breast cancers are due to the breast cancer gene BRCA2. We are specifically looking at the relationship between male breast cancer and the BRCA2 gene. If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are male, we would like to invite you to participate in our study. We will ask you to provide a small blood sample, answer a questionnaire, answer questions about cancer history within your family, and sign a medical release form so we can obtain your medical records pertaining only to cancer. There will be no cost to you and we will provide the materials necessary for your participation. Your information will be kept completely confidential. If you would like to participate in our study or if you would like more information please contact Linda Steele by e-mail ( or by phone - toll-free at 1-877-893-GENE(4363) or (801) 587-9303.
