Bret Miller, diagnosed at age 24 with breast cancer after having a lump for 7+ years. Upon learning of his diagnosis and hearing that many men don’t speak about breast cancer due to the fact many think it’s only a women’s disease and emasculating when diagnosed, Bret made the decision that, “No man would ever feel alone again when they hear those words you have breast cancer.” The Bret Miller 1T and MBCC was formed to ensure that all men have a support system to go to when they are diagnosed.
