Men have breasts too

Male breast cancer is rarely spoken about leaving some men who get the disease feeling like a blue dot in a sea of pink. Helen is joined by Ron Rapaport and Greg Sargeaunt, members of the international organisation The Male Breast Cancer Coalition to talk about the work they do to break down the stigma of male breast cancer. Ron was enjoying the start of his retirement in sunny Florida when he was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2018 and now volunteers with the coalition to educate men all over the world. Greg is the only man in New Zealand to be part of the national mammogram programme after being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2016.
