Interests in Male and Female Breast Cancer awareness

According to Anthony. He was really happy about getting to champion the PinkDrive breast cancer bracelet. As breast cancer is something he’s “quite passionate about.” Although the majority of breast cancer cases occur in women. Many people would be surprised to learn that men can develop breast cancer too.

However, in addition to that. Oseyemi said men we needed to stand with their sisters, wives, and mothers in this cause. While all men are aware of breast cancer. Many stay silent on this topic thinking it’s not appropriate for them to let their voices be heard in this discussion.

So, according Oseyemi. Men needed to be active participants in the fight against breast cancer. In his own words: “What could be more appropriate than caring for the women we love?”
