About HIS

HIS Breast Cancer Awareness was founded in honor of all men who are at risk of, diagnosed, and surviving the Disease of Breast Cancer and those who have died because of it.

Our Mission

Our mission is to increase awareness and hence the early detection for all men and to help those who are at high risk due to genetics and other risk factors to gain access to regular screenings. Through our efforts we hope to increase all studies and trials to include men for Diagnostics, Hormonal, Immunotherapy and Genetics, gaining a true understanding of how this disease progresses in men, how it conflicts with that of a woman, and the best course of treatment.

About The Founders

Harvey Singer - HIS Male Breast Cancer Co-Founder

Harvey I. Singer

HIS Co-Founder | Male Breast Cancer Survivor | Prostate Cancer Survivor | BRCA2 Gene Mutation Carrier

In October of 2008 and after ignoring some basic signs and symptoms for about 4 months, I was officially diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Even though my younger sister had lived with Breast Cancer and three recurrences of it and had been genetically diagnosed as BRCA 2 positive, I was still shocked that I, a 54 year old male, could contract this disease.

Vicki Wolf - HIS Male Breast Cancer Co-Founder

Vicki M. Wolf

HIS Co-Founder | 4x Breast Cancer Survivor | BRCA2 Gene Mutation Carrier

With a family history of cancers, two diagnoses of DCIS and two IDC myself, plus learning that I carry a genetic mutation it is important to me to help educate and support my sons, family and anyone who has a higher risk of developing cancer. Creating our foundation, educating and advocating is my passion. 


Your gift will be put to great use in bringing valuable information regarding male breast cancer awareness and education. In addition, our goal is to assist in the funding of research that will result in great advances in education, prevention, treatment and hopefully one day, a cure.  The funds raised by this foundation will work to achieve our goals for all men who are at risk of or diagnosed with breast cancer.
