Michael Selsman with wife Kara and sons Adam and Jacob at Dana-Farber’s annual Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week event
When Michael Selsman came home from his morning jog two years ago, he noticed a lump on his chest. It was strange, because he’d never seen it before, but he figured it was probably just an irritation. A couple of weeks passed, and the lump grew larger. So Michael made an appointment with his doctor. The results were surprising — stage IV breast cancer.
“I was shocked. I’d never heard of men getting breast cancer. It took me a while to even drag …

Since today is Memorial Day and we celebrate those who have served our country, I have chosen today to share this message from our friend Peter Devereaux. Peter served our country and was based at Camp Lejeune. He is one of the many men based at Camp Lejeune who developed male breast cancer.
A Message from Peter- THE CANCER IS BACK
My treatment stopped working. My cancer had a chance to grow and get inflamed. We have already started a new treatment and they are hopeful for great results. These are the challenging times when my body is extremely sore with …
Male Breast Cancer
What’s it all about? I know a lot of the men I talk with feel alone with this diagnosis. I personally don’t, I was able to connect with women early on to help me on my journey. I really hope we can continue to grow and raise awareness, so men know they could get male breast cancer.
Earlier this month I mentioned about the Art fashion show at Neiman Marcus. It was a huge success and loads of fun. I think everyone had a great time. A fun event and it raised money for a good cause. Be Strong.
