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 …
This was the last blog Peter Devereaux sent to us last month. It is with heavy hearts we share Peter’s last blog again in light of his recent passing at the age of 52 from male breast cancer.
For us, Peter was a beacon of light and an inspiration to anyone who had the wonderful opportunity to know and meet him. For me, meeting Peter was indeed a special gift I will hold in my heart forever.
Peter was a true fighter both in the ring and out of the ring; a hero who not only served his country bravely but …
Lets start off by saying it has been a difficult and challenging year with cancer. We have had 4 rounds of radiation in a four month period. I received a Leptomeningeal diagnosis (which means the cancer is in the fluid of my spine and brain). I received whole brain radiation, which brought me some relief. Due to the Leptomeningeal disease I was having trouble with my speech, swallow and balance. The radiation helped everything.
I am currently at home with open hospice. Right now they only have to be here once a week, I am currently I am on steroids and …
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.
Hello everyone , I hope all is good. Wondering if you all had a chance to check out the male breast cancer piece on Brian Williams Rock Center. My part is on the Rock center website. So take a look, they did a good job and let me know what you think. (link below)
I will also be appearing at Neiman Marcus on March 7 at 6-8pm for a Fashion show and cocktail reception on the first floor. I will be one of the models. Jason Varitek and Walter McCarty plus many other radio and TV celebrities attending. Sarah Underwood will …
On January 11, 2008 is the day my hand bumped into my chest and noticed a lump. Followed by a visit to the PCP and then mammogram, ultrasound followed by a core biopsy. I had my surgery on the 28th of January. Chemotherapy started on the 27th of February. My cancer spread to my spine in April 2009. Five years to the day I had to switched to like my 7th or 8th treatment. It has been an unbelievable journey that I wish no one else to go on. I am so glad that I have so many great friends …
