Increasing Awareness of Breast Cancer- Males too!

The United Breast Cancer Foundation‘s print Public Service Announcement (PSA), “SHUTOUT Breast Cancer,” featuring Gold Medal Olympian and USA Women’s Hockey Goaltender, Alex Rigsby, is proudly featured during the Stanley Cup Finals 7 Game Series in the Official 2018 National Hockey League (NHL) Stanley Cup Finals Commemorative Souvenir Program. UBCF’s print Call to Action PSA, located on the Inside Back Cover of the Stanley Cup Program, promotes Gold Medal Olympian Alex Rigsby’s message encouraging all of us to do our part to SHUTOUT Breast Cancer.

One of UBCF’s goals is to increase awareness of breast cancer and encourages men and women to be aware of any physical changes. UBCF’s Executive Director, Ms. Stephanie Mastroianni shared, “UBCF is raising awareness of breast cancer for both women AND men. An estimated 2550 men will be diagnosed this year alone. Let’s SHUTOUT Breast Cancer – early detection is key and UBCF is here to help.” Learn the Self Breast Exam here: male versionfemale version.
