Default Can I make a suggestion?

I don't want this to be taken the wrong way and I am not trying to take away from the struggle of women who face breast cancer... But I would love to see a section for men. Something for prostate cancer. 1 in 7 men will face this in their lifetime and the numbers are rising. I love that breast cancer gets the awareness it does it does but I wish there would be more support for us men out there.

True that! I have a 70-year old uncle that has been diagnosed with stage 2 cancer. He has been scheduled for 6 sessions for chemotherapy. He already has undergone 4. 3 more sessions. Regardless of gender, a cancer patient needs support more than anything else.

I have a great friend that is currently battling pancreatic cancer. This has been going on for a few months. He has been going through chemotherapy once per week and still goes to work every day as a maintenance worker in an apartment complex. He is 54 years old and the initial diagnosis was that 5% of people with his condition live more than 5 years. We are praying that he will be part of the 5%.He seems to be doing well.

Yes - or maybe add a general cancer forum not specific to type. I'd love to see that as a cancer survivor.
