Raising Awareness of Male Breast Cancer

The Male Breast Cancer Coalition

The Male Breast Cancer Coalition (MBCC), a not-for-profit patient advocacy organization, brings everyone together to educate the world about male breast cancer.

When diagnosed with breast cancer at age 24, Bret promised his surgeon no man would ever feel alone when hearing the words, “You have breast cancer.” After a very close friend’s husband was diagnosed with breast cancer, Cheri began her mission to end the stigma and feelings of abandonment associated with a male breast cancer diagnosis. As a result of a connection made on Facebook, together Bret and Cheri formed The Male Breast Cancer Coalition in 2014.

MBCC shares stories from male breast cancer survivors all over the world. Learn more here and find resources for men and their families navigating through what is usually a women’s only club.
MBCC also honors lives lost in the “In Memoriam” section.

We are on a mission to build awareness through the wisdom and experiences of survivors. We visit high schools and colleges around the country sharing journeys and educating audiences. Our survivors want students to know every individual is his/her own best advocate for their bodies. We participate in events around the world to raise awareness of male breast cancer. We attend conferences, so we can become more knowledgeable and advocate. Until we educate everyone, including the medical community concerning the need for more testing and clinical trials focusing on men with breast cancer, our mission continues to be an uphill battle.

We want people to be informed. Breast cancer does not discriminate and we want everyone to know “Men Have Breasts Too.”

We Are The Male Breast Cancer Coalition.
Bret, Cheri,  Peggy  and Bob

As Peggy always says, “Together we will change the world.”
