SUNDAY, October 2, 2016 (Forbes)–When I met Carl “Mac” Holmes, it was in the midst of a conference for breast cancer patients. Lt. Colonel Holmes, a former Air Force pilot, stood out from most other attendees, because he is a man who lives with metastatic breast cancer. He looked sharp, with gray-brown eyes, white hair and a polo shirt tucked in.
“It’s not a man’s world,” he told me. Indeed, male breast tumors accounts for a tiny proportion of cases. The CDC reports that 2,000 U.S. men receive a diagnosis of breast cancer annually. The number of women diagnosed with invasive disease exceeds 240,000 each year.
