Men and women get breast cancer. October is breast cancer awareness month. We are celebrating the fighters. The median age for women is 60. Like black women, black men with breast cancer tend to have a worse prognosis. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1 in 833. Treatment includes surgery, radiation, hormone therapy and chemotherapy. Families of all shapes and sizes (including couples!) would benefit from playroom resources to create memories in a more comfortable environment with things to do to pass the time. Clinic appointments, testing, treatment and hospitalizations are frequent and B-O-R-I-N-G! Help us to continue to advocate for ALL cancers to have a place to be together to create memories while undergoing treatment with their family.
