THE TWO‐PART MISSION TO SAVE LIVES
Fact: Cancer is a grim and dark topic that no one enjoys talking about. It’s not uncommon for many to BURY the idea that you could be NEXT-- preferring to believe cancer can happen to someone else. But history shows that CANCER WILL ALWAYS SURPRISE YOU! This is why creating a ground attack and a crusade needs to happen to "get the drop on cancer." We can do this by staying smart with awareness, get vigilant with a healthy lifestyle and keeping our eyes open for this sneaky disease before it catches you!
We have a growing list of partners that are now endorsing our message- including:
- "Awareness for a Cure" - Recurrence Prevention Program
- Integrative Medicine of NY - "Stay in Remission"
- Male Breast Cancer Coalition - "Breast Cancer Does Not Discriminate"
- NYCRA: NY Cancer Resource Alliance
- The First Responders Cancer Resource
- WBAB's Plugged Into Long Island
- The Pain Resource Alliance

BE MY HERO- GET CHECKED NOW!
"In my tenure as one of the founding directors of the Male Breast Cancer Coalition, I have met so many brave and inspiring men who have come forward about this plaguing disease. Against the odds, they stepped up to get a complete diagnosis, underwent the process of cancer treatment and are still with us today- walking this earth to spread the word to others about how REAL Male Breast Cancer truly is!
Recently, I have met a growing number of FIREFIGHTERS in our area who fell prey to this disorder. As OCCUPATIONAL HAZARDS go, first responders carry some of the highest risk for cancers due to the exposure to some of the most horrible toxins. But the real danger is the stigma about getting Breast Cancer that keeps them from getting checkups. Thanks to NYCRA's "Get Checked Now" campaign, more and more are getting our message on time to address the cancer, and to stay vigilant about EARLY DETECTION & PREVENTION about this cancer and all other cancers that threaten our lives."
