We’re here for you.
Breast cancer can be a long journey, and we don’t ever want you to feel that you are traveling that road alone. MBCGA now offers three private member-hosted communities on Facebook: one for men with breast cancer, one for their care partners, and one for those who have lost a loved one to male breast cancer.
Each group is a place where you can freely and safely connect, learn, share, and feel supported. Engage with others from diagnosis through treatment; get information about clinical trials and research efforts; and share your stories and experiences with others who truly understand. All groups are visible on Facebook, but membership is by approval and only members can see who’s in the group and what they post. JOIN US!
AnCan is about people helping people, peer-to-peer—people living with various conditions and situations, who help others faced with similar issues. AnCan does this collectively and individually by providing answers, advocacy, education, support, and navigation to empower people living with serious and chronic conditions to address their worlds. A top-rated charitable organization, AnCan’s vision is to provide easily accessible, inclusive virtual peer support for every serious disease and condition allowing widespread participation, especially to those geographically, physically, or socially disadvantaged.
Man Up to Cancer is changing what it means to “Man Up” to cancer; inspiring men to connect and avoid isolation throughout their cancer journeys. Too often, men “check out” after a cancer diagnosis. They struggle with shame, depression, and loss of identity, all of which can lead to poor outcomes. Man Up to Cancer provides a wide range of digital content, as well as an incredibly engaged Facebook group, to tackle the isolation problem head-on. “Manning Up” isn’t about being tough. It’s about realizing that men are smarter and stronger as a pack than they are as lone wolves. And it means reaching out, instead of isolating, and having the courage to accept help.
The Men’s Virtual Meet-Up (VMU)
in partnership with WalktheWalk
In 2017, WalktheWalk/UK launched their “Men Get Breast Cancer Too” campaign with just 6 male survivors, and now have 24 men involved with their efforts. Survivors Doug Harper (Lead Moderator) and Dave Talbot host the monthly Men’s Virtual Meet-Up (UK), a wonderful opportunity for men who have had breast cancer to “meet” and talk about things that are important and unique to them. This resource is peer-led, run by and for men affected by breast cancer. Meetings are held on the 4th Thursday of each month at 7:00pm (UK time). For more information, email email@example.com.
