Breast Cancer Resources for Men

One in 40 men and women of Ashkenazi (Central or Eastern European) Jewish descent carries a BRCA gene mutation, nearly 10 times the rate of the general population, making Jewish families significantly more susceptible to hereditary breast cancer and ovarian cancer. Men who carry a BRCA mutation have a 50% chance of passing that alteration on to each of their sons and daughters.  If you have a strong family history of cancer, have considered genetic counseling for you or your children, or have opted for genetic testing, we can help. 

 

SUPPORT AT EVERY STAGE

Whether cancer is early stage or late stage, we offer services, support, and resources for partners, children, parents, and friends.

"Sharsheret provides a very important service to the Jewish community at large. When a woman has no one to talk to or confide in, Sharsheret is there to provide a shoulder to lean on, an ear to listen, and a woman who has a shared experience to sympathize with. Keep up this great work!"
