Breast Cancer for Husbands

Comments (3)

My friend Mitchell Ashley has started a really powerful new blog titled BreastCancerForHusbandsI’m at the age where several of my friends have now fought with breast cancer – fortunately no one close to me has died from it. 

Mitchell’s wife Mary Ellen has breast cancer and he’s decided to blog about his experience with it.  Mitchell is a brave writer and speaks his mind clearly – he’s not afraid of talking about the ups and downs.  He also doesn’t pull any punches, as is evidenced by his post Don’t Be An Edwards Dumbass, Support Your Wife.

Highly recommended reading for anyone with a friend or family member struggling with any kind of cancer.  Mitchell – thanks for being brave enough to blog about this stuff.

    Brad – The thanks goes to great friends like you who provide encouragement, support, and well… unwavering friendship.

    I hope that by sharing our experiences, both my wife and I can help other husbands (and wives too) while continuing to strengthen ourselves. There's no one in the universe who I'd fight harder to help than Mary Ellen. I hope I have the courage to share what I can through this blog so all of use can battle and win against breast cancer.

    I hope all our readers will continue to support breast cancer research organizations. As the Breast Cancer For Husbands community grows, I hope we can organize “the guys” to help meet the needs of each other and of support organizations like Susan G. Komen, Breast Cancer Research Foundation, Breast Cancer Network of Strength (formerly Y-ME) and many others.

    The following is link to an incredible book (“It takes a worried man” by Brendan Halpin) that pretty much describe my experience as the spouse / “support system” for my wife in the early years of her battles

    I even exchanged a couple of e-mails with the author a few years ago.

    Mr. Ashley, if there is anything I can do to help you and your wife, please let me know. I have friends and many years of involvement in the cancer survivorship community.
