ANSWER : NO KIDDING!
The fact is, as a longtime contributor to CURE MAGAZINE and dozen's of other cancer publications, webinars and Blogs, my audience has always been primarily female. Male breast cancer is an extremely rare disease. But you can be certain that men share the same fears, concerns and questions as our women counterparts. My job, in fact my mission, is to open an honest dialogue about breast cancer--be it male or female--and to bring hope and positivity to those of us who share this unfortunate disease.
I've seen and lived both sides of cancer. I was the husband and caregiver of a woman who died of ovarian cancer in 1997. I've spent a good portion of my adult life in and around cancer. I was diagnosed with Male Breast Cancer in 2014, at the age of 64.
I'm here to look cancer in the eye, to express all of the emotion and consternation that accompanies survival and yes, the hope and expectation that cancer demands of us in our lives.
My programs are remarkably upbeat, positive, hopeful, often humorous and always entertaining. If I've learned anything from breast cancer, it's a deep and heartfelt respect for all of the women of the world who share my disease.
I look forward to spending some time with your group.
PS. Did I mention I've been a full-time professional magician for 40 years?
I make conventions FUN !
