There’s a day for Mother’s, Father’s, and your boss, a day for honoring our flag, our veterans and our freedom. There is Black Friday to go shopping, Cyber Monday to shop on line and so why not have a day for giving? Welcome #GivingTuesday, the Tuesday that follows Thanksgiving!
#GivingTuesday, is a global giving movement that has been driven by individuals, families, organizations, businesses and communities in all 50 states and in countries around the world. After two days for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday – #GivingTuesday is a day for giving back.

It is projected that over 2,400 new cases of male breast cancer will be diagnosed and over 400 men will die from the disease. The percentage fatality rate is often higher for men diagnosed with breast cancer as usually no one is checking and men don’t notice the symptoms of male breast cancer as they are not even aware they can be diagnosed with breast cancer. Men also do not have the options women may with breast conserving surgery/treatment and so mastectomy is most often performed due to the limited amount of tissue. Just imagine hearing the words as a man, or a woman about her father, husband, son or any loved one; Sir, You Have Breast Cancer! Breast cancer doesn’t just effect sisters and daughter’s, breast cancer effects sons and brothers. In addition with the current awareness of the BRCA gene mutation thanks to Angelina Jolie, it’s important to note that 50% of the worlds BRCA (breast cancer susceptibility gene) carriers are male.
HIS Breast Cancer Awareness was formed in 2010 as a fully credited nonprofit 501©3 organization to bring education, awareness, prevention and lifestyle assistance to anyone dealing with Male Breast Cancer or having a family member with a history of Breast Cancer. Vicki and Harvey (co-founders) are both Breast Cancer Survivors and carry the BRCA gene mutation. Between them they have 5 sons, all who have a 50/50% to be BRCA positive which are also known factors in the cause of Prostate, Pancreatic, Melanoma and Ovarian as well as many other cancers.
We know that we have already saved men’s lives and with your support, we can reach so many more!
Please consider choosing HIS Breast Cancer as your charity to give and support this #GivingTuesday and through the holidays.
