For the past five years, Peter Devereaux has been battling invasive ductal carcinoma. His battle with breast cancer spread to his hips, ribs, and spine in 2009. He is one of 82 men diagnosed with breast cancer linked to water contamination at Camp Lejeune. During his years of active service as a U.S. Marine, Devereaux spent 16 months at Camp Lejeune. After receiving the diagnosis, he underwent a left breast mastectomy with 22 cancerous lymph nodes removed and endured numerous rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. All before learning of the contaminated water affecting members and their families dating back to 1980. It's now estimated that between 500,000 and 1 million individuals were exposed to an epic porportion of contaminants amounting to as much as 3400 times that permitted by safety standards. Rallying with the support of his family and friends, Devereaux has become a national spokesperson for breast cancer awareness. According to medical experts more than 2,000 men are afflicted with the disease annually.
From NBC News to The Saturday Evening Post and speaking engagements to congressional hearings Devereaux just keeps moving, despite ongoing treatment regimens. As a former Marine, Golden Glove boxer, and former ultramarathoner he's one of "The Few, The Proud" who refuses to be "The Forgotten."&nbs
