Was founded in 2008 by Heidi Wagner and Natalie Wagner, in support of their father, Herbert Paul Wagner, who at the age of 61 was diagnosed with Male Breast Cancer (MBC). As well, the organization "A Man's Pink" was established in 2009 to support this website and incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in Canada in August 2011 and in Florida in January 2012. We received 501(c)(3) charitable status in the United States in March of 2012.
This website site is designed to provide Male Breast Cancer (MBC) patients, survivors and their loved ones with access to information on male breast cancer. We also provide a forum to share individual stories, and one on one support to other male breast cancer patients and survivors. By increasing awareness and early detection we can afford men the same survival rates as women diagnosed with breast cancer. "We've Added a Little Blue to the Pink". Our mission is to increase MBC awareness, treatment and bring MBC survival rates into the 21st century.
Our goal is to increase MBC awareness by establishing the third week of October as MBC awareness week globally.
