The Real Facts of Male Breast Cancer
Breast Cancer is the second leading cause of death of women in the United States. However, breast cancer can occur in men, as well. According to recent statistics from the Center for Disease Control, 222,000 women and 2,100 men in the United States were diagnosed with breast cancer this year. 41,000 women and 450 men in the United States died from breast cancer in 2014. Many popular cancer-related websites, have limited to zero findings about “Male” breast cancer and treatments. Most of the sites appeal to, inform, and are directed towards women. Very few websites acknowledge the fact that male breast cancer even exists. The lack of commercials, blogs, and survival stories has proven that people do not fully understand what male breast cancer is about. The first step is to bring further public awareness to this issue. Men who suffer from this disease deserve to have the proper internet information, just as women do.
To bring more attention to this particular affliction, World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation is presenting the feature film, The Lovely Patient, which highlights Frank Hartsfeld, a man battling breast cancer, while he is also desperately searching for a way to attend his daughter’s wedding. This poignant story helps bring awareness to this often overlooked, severe medical condition.
