Male Breast Cancer

A few months ago, when Ford created the Customize your mustang feature on line, I created a few designs, one of them being called “Save the Ta-Tas” for breast cancer awareness month. Now, here comes the weird thing. Three weeks after I created that design a little voice told me to go to the doctor. I was diagnosed with Male Breast Cancer at 44 years old, Stage 1. Had two surgeries, one to remove the lump and the other for double mastectomy. I guess it was just an omen when I created that car. Anyway, I am not sure if it was in Gods plan for me to create that design to get me to doctor but now as I looked back, it had to be an Angel that told me to create it. Anyway, just wanted to write a short note to Ford. I created a Blue Mustang with pink accents to support Male Breast Cancer awareness. My new motto is…Everyday is Gift, Enjoy It!

That is fantastic that you caught it early. I too am a survivor of almost 8 years now. You are the first person I've ever read about who was diagnosed with breast cancer as a man. I knew it was rare, but that it unfortunately does exist. I'm really interested to hear more about your journey. Please feel free to contact me anytime. Thanks for sharing!  Sincerely, Talena Velez Talena Black Velez on Facebook agentpigtails at gmail
