Director, Male Breast Cancer Coalition
Prairie Village, KS, USA
I am Peggy Miller, Mother of Bret Miller the founder of the Male Breast Cancer Coalition. I am also the Director of the Bret Miller1T Foundation a 501 c3 Non-Profit and Director for the MBCC also.
In 2003 my son Bret showed his father and I a lump on his right nipple. Immediately I as a women thought to myself could that be what they tell us women to look for in our breast!
At the time we had no health insurance and Bret was a Junior in High School as wrestler and football player. Bob and I were on the Booster club and we had just started a physical night so the students who had no insurance could get the physicals done for $25.
It was going to be run my parents who had their own students at the high school.
So that is when I told Bret let’s have them check it. Over 7 Drs. Looked at the lump and told him it was calcium he was becoming a man. For 7 years thru college every doctor told us them same. Until in 2010 one doctor finally sent him for a sonogram!
I run the daily work of the BM1TMBCC from talking with survivors, caregivers, doing all social media! My passion has always been video work so God gave me this Gift of a videographer, editor, and graphic design, so I can help Build Awareness to the WORLD that Breast Cancer does not discriminate if you have Breasts you can get BREAST CANCER!
Today myself, Bret, Cheri Ambrose, Bob Miller work this 24/7. My hashtag is #TogetherWeWillChangetheWORLD that #MenHaveBreastsToo and sadly to say every week we are finding Men from all over the World.
When faced with the words, 'You have breast cancer,' no man will feel alone ever again.
