Petition: Speak Out For Men With Breast Cancer!

Dear Pink Ribbon Supporters,

Do you know a man who has been diagnosed with breast cancer? The statistics are higher than you might think. Sign our petition to speak out for men with breast cancer! Though breast cancer is less likely to occur in men than women, still, close to 2,000 men are diagnosed in the U.S. each year. Raymond Johnson of South Carolina was denied coverage for breast cancer treatment by Medicaid on the grounds he's not female. Male breast cancer, although less common, is no different than female breast cancer. In terms of prognosis, treatment, and the emotional effects, a diagnosis for a man carries the same weight as that for a woman. There is no scientific basis in refusing a man coverage simply because he is a man. We have come a long way with gender equality, and not providing this man with the care he needs will only set us back — and more importantly, could have dire implications for his health. Sign our petition for Medicaid Administrator, Donald Berwick, M.D. demanding that he stop the discrimination and give men with breast cancer the coverage they need. Click here to take action now!
