Although breast cancer in men is rare, an estimated 2,150 men will be diagnosed with breast cancer and approximately 410 will die each year.
Since Rudi's diagnosis with Breast Cancer in October 2012, Rudi has become a passionate advocate to educate others about the disease. He acts as a spokesperson for men who have had this somewhat rare diagnosis, but is also interested in teaching the entire community more about breast health with the message that prevention and early detection is the best defense against the disease.

Thank you All :)
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and while we know that relationships can be difficult at times what happens when a diagnosis such as breast cancer is put into the mix? Today we’ll talk to women who have gone through the ordeal and get their views on how their womanhood and relationships were affected.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, we'll have a candid discussion with Sandra L. Craig... a 20 year breast cancer survivor to promote breast cancer awareness in both men and women, to help the audience understand early detection and prevention, and discuss ways to celebrate once you are healed.
In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, co-host Angelica Holiday discusses her own person journey with cancer and 15 tips on how to be a super friend during your friend's recovery. Angelica was devastated when her closest friend had breast cancer. Then, in a strange twist of fate, a month after this friend's last chemo, Angelica was diagnosed with Stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. "Friends are a vital part toward recovery" she claims. This is how you, as a friend, can be there for another in need. We discuss Angelica's top 15 Tips on how to help your friend (for both women and men):
During cancer treatment there’s a limited diet, so explore those foods your friend can eat and cook together... My friend and stylist took me in hand... Purple, zebra wigs, he tried them too and we both laughed together... Find your friend special make-up from The American Cancer Society which has an amazing complimentary make-up and hair program called “Look Good, Feel Better”... Have a make-up night with this make-up. Other manicures, facial, the dentist and pap smears are put on hold... "Chemo Brain," an inside joke my best friend and I said to each other... when one is having treatment, you forget everything. Help the friend to write down all their user names and passwords... We discuss these and many more tips on the show.

In the midst of Pinktober, one can't help but raise awareness of Breast Cancer! It is one of the most recognized National Awareness Initiatives adopted by the country. Since its inception in 1985, the National Breast Cancer Awareness Month organization (NBCAM) has been at the forefront of promoting awareness of breast cancer issues and has evolved along with the national dialogue on breast cancer.
Why so PINK? Because we care! Everyone is impacted by this disease in some personal or impersonal way. Tonight, I am speaking with On-Air Radio Personality ML6, of 103.1 WEUP, located in Huntsville, AL to share her connection with Breast Cancer.
There are PLENTY of ways to show your support of Pinktober, and by tuning in tonight, you will be able to learn ways to help FIGHT breast cancer!
