"Going The Distance" are stories of other men who have fought breast cancer and won. I started this series to get the word out and to inspire others that there is hope! I don’t have many stories, but there are a lot men out there who have stories to tell. But there also are a lot men who are still too scared to tell their story because of being ridiculed by society. That is something we all need to change. Below, are excerpts of stories posted on my website. I encourage you go there and read each story in full. “Upon leaving the medical office, the radiologist told me that there was a good chance that I had breast cancer, but we had to wait for the results. Three days later I had 3 needle biopsies. March 13, results were in, I had breast cancer.. Talk about a shock!! Even though I had been planning to hear those words in my head, it was surreal.. Immediately my wife set up 4 consultations with oncologists. I found out I had the specific breast cancer that was estrogen driven. I also took the blood test and found out I was positive for carrying the gene.” — Chris Gallo “People were pretty cruel,” Bryson, 67, told BCRF in a recent interview remembering some of the insensitive remarks made during his treatment. An old boss joked before his double mastectomy that he was getting breast implants, another told him “you didn’t need that nipple anyway.
