"As a father and husband, my dream job, not being able to ‘fix’ my wife’s diagnosis was the hardest for me to deal with.” – Mike Werb.

In February, shortly after the birth of his first child, Mike's wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. Feeling helpless against the disease, he turned to his hobby – watch collecting – and teamed up with Crown and Buckle to create ‪#‎Straps4ACure‬ watch straps to raise funds for BCRF. So far, the initiative has raised nearly $6,000! His story is featured in our latest blog post.
In February, Mike Werb and his wife Jaclyn had just welcomed their two-month-old son into the world when their lives turned upside down. Jaclyn, 29, was breastfeeding Luke when she discovered a lump on her breast.

The recently released Annual Report to the Nation on the Status of Cancer 1975-2011 noted overall favorable trends in cancer incidence and mortality and for the first time included analyses by breast cancer subtype, race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status and geographic area.
Each year the American Cancer Society, Centers for Disease Control, National Cancer Institute and North American Association of Central Cancer Registries join forces to compile a report on national cancer statistics for the U.S.

"Fathers, like every other man, need to be vigilant because breast cancer is not just a woman’s disease. It’s important to know your family history, if not for yourself then for your children and grandchildren.” – breast cancer survivor Jacob Bryson.

Seven years after his diagnosis – and one year after his daughter was diagnosed with breast cancer – Jacob has decided to share his story publicly. He hopes it will educate others on the many faces of the disease. http://ow.ly/OrS8v
When Jacob Bryson’s wife Rebecca felt a lump on his peck seven years ago, his doctor told him it was a benign cyst. At the time the 60-year-old father of two and grandfather decided to play it safe and have it removed.

“I am thankful for research being done by BCRF. It directly impacts me because my doctors are involved in it.” – Tomomi Arikawa.

With both her mother and grandmother as breast cancer survivors, Tomomi knew she had a chance of developing the disease – but did not expect to receive a diagnosis at 31. Now, nearly five years later, she is running in the Honolulu Marathon to celebrate survivorship and the research that led to her recovery.
Help Tomomi cross the finish line. Support her marathon today with a small or large donation. Every dollar counts! Learn more here.
