IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

submitted the following resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform

RESOLUTION

Expressing support for designation of the third week of October as Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week.

Whereas each year 450 men will die from male breast cancer and the numbers are increasing;

Whereas men are typically diagnosed at a late stage due to a lack of awareness that men can develop the disease;

Whereas it behooves each of us, men, women, parents, siblings, educators, physicians, and citizens, to promote awareness of the disease and to save lives;

Whereas we must educate the world to the reality of this disease; and

Whereas in remembrance of the many men who have lost their lives or are fighting for their lives, due to a lack of awareness, it is appropriate that we designate the third week of October as Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week: Now, therefore, be it

That the House of Representatives supports the designation, as well as the goals and ideals, of Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week.
