 October - Breast Cancer Awareness

Men Against Breast Cancer (MABC) is the first and only national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization designed to provide targeted support services that educate and empower men to be effective caregivers when cancer strikes. Since our founding in 1999, MABC has mobilized men across America, including under served populations, to be active participants in the fight against breast cancer. Our philosophy is to leverage the support of the whole family to help the patient, with special emphasis on the important role of men in caring for the women they love.

Never before has any organization taken such a unique and integrative approach through the implementation of proven programs to educate men on their important responsibilities as caregivers. To develop these tools we continue to work in partnership with a variety of groups such as internationally recognized medical experts who specialize in the psychosocial aspects of coping with cancer, leading medical facilities, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention state and local governments, and corporate partners.
