Getting a diagnosis of breast cancer can be devastating to couples. It doesn’t affect just one partner, but both partners in a relationship. Encouraging each other to talk about feelings can help ease the burden of treatment and recovery, but also getting involved in the community’s awareness events can help give support to men and women battling breast cancer.

The Susan G. Komen for the Cure® is a nonprofit organization advocating for breast cancer research, education, advocacy, health services and social support programs in the United States.
The organization is an eponym for Susan Goodman Komen, who was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 33 and died three years later, at the age of 36, in 1980. Komen’s sister, Nancy Brinker founded the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation in 1982. In 2007, the name was changed to Susan G. Komen for the Cure with the logo of a pink ribbon.

Out of the Shadow of Pink
“Out of the Shadow of Pink, LLC was founded in 2005 by my husband and I after his diagnosis; totally rearranging our lives forever. Sadly, Joe lost his battle with male breast cancer in September 2008 but he wanted us to continue the fight and to spread the word about this rare and devastating form of cancer.”
