Help us promote Australia’s first Male Breast Cancer Awareness Day
This year it is expected
that 144 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer. While this is a small
proportion of the total number of people diagnosed – less than 1 per cent –
it’s a diagnosis that can bring very specific challenges for men.
awareness that men get breast cancer too, BCNA is launching Australia’s first Male
Breast Cancer Awareness Day on Friday 20 October 2017.
We are calling on our members to help us raise awareness and reduce community stigma around male breast cancer – a diagnosis that is often thought of as a “woman’s disease”.
Helping us is as easy as:
· sharing your story about being a man with breast cancer on the online network or social media
· following Breast Cancer Network Australia on Facebook and @BCNAPinkLady on Twitter and Instagram and sharing our posts about Male Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
More information about Male Breast Cancer Awareness Day can be found on BCNA's latest news item on Male Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
If you’re a man with breast cancer, information to support you can be found on our Breast cancer in men page.
Thank you for getting involved with Australia’s first Male Breast Cancer Awareness Day and supporting men diagnosed with breast cancer.
