My name is Robert Charles McCoy Jr.

I first learned that I had Male Breast Cancer a few days after losing everything to Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

I was only 24 years old at the time of my diagnosis. These days I try to raise awareness about male breast cancer. A few months ago I published a book about my experience.

(Hyperlink removed by CSN community manager.)

I look forward to getting to know you all and hopefully connecting with some more male survivors.

    Welcome Robert. i have a

    Welcome Robert.


    i have a question for you.  A friends husband is in his fifties now has had one sister pass of breast cancer which was misdiagnosed originally and his other sister now also has breast cancer.  I advised my friend to get her hubby to at least talk to some one about being checked out.  He has not done so as far as I know.  Your thoughts ..........  What type cancer did you have.  Hope you are clear now.

    Male Breast Cancer

    Welcome Robert,

    We have two men with breast cancer who post on this site.  I hope they will come on and post.

    Good luck with your book.  It is certainly a topic that needs to have more awareness.

    Male Breast Cancer

    Hello,Robert. I'm very sorry to hear about your problems with Katrina and Cancer in the same year. I think that it is great that you are trying to spread the word about Male Breast Cancer, but I do not think you should try to sell your book on this site! This site is NOT for anyone to try to PROFIT from their illness. I even wonder if you have HAD Breast Cancer TWICE !

    I'm sorry that you have been "FLAGGED",but if you had not been, I would have! Iwould have liked to get to know you if you are truly into spreading the "word" and not into "profit".
