Michael Johnston Spreading the word for men with breast cancer

A woman noticed the front of Michael Johnston’s T-shirt as he got on the Dana building elevator, and smiled.
“Very cute,” she said upon noting the credo “Real Men Wear Pink” across his chest.
Johnston returned the grin, and then surprised the woman by pointing at his chest and replying:
“I only fill it out half-way, you know — really.”
It’s that unique circumstance that has Johnston visiting Dana-Farber these days: breast cancer treatment.
