Hi all,

Today BCNA is shining a light on men living with breast cancer in Australia to help raise awareness. It is often surprising for many to learn that men develop breast cancer and while it is rare (less than 1% of all cancers in men), there is still projected to be approximately 150 men who will be affected by breast cancer this year - CLICK HERE to read BCNA’s latest The Beacon article ‘Raising awareness of the experiences of men with breast cancer’.

You can also head to the BCNA Facebook page to hear some of our members share their stories: https://www.facebook.com/BreastCancerNetworkAustralia/videos/249955440429182/

If you are a man diagnosed with breast cancer or know someone who has been affected, please check out BCNA’s resources:

Here on the Online Network we have a private group where you can connect with other men who have breast cancer https://onlinenetwork.bcna.org.au/group/20-men-living-with-breast-cancer.

Thankyou to those members who have shared their story.
