Bret Miller 1T Foundation

Male Breast Cancer Foundation

Bret Miller was diagnosed with breast cancer at the age of 24. With the help of his parents, he founded The Bret Miller 1T Foundation. The goal of the foundation is to raise awareness in colleges and high schools telling our youth that breast cancer can happen to anyone. Male breast cancer survivors share their journeys and let students know they are their own best advocates for their bodies.

Personal Blog

 Facing cancer made me realize that if I ever wanted to write a book, there was no time like the present.  During my diagnosis process I read some absolutely amazing books written by women who had also been through this breast cancer journey.  Their stories of strength and perseverance inspired me to share my own story. 

My first book is all about my journey through my DCIS diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.  I cannot wait to share this book with you! Subscribe to the newsletter, and check back to the website to follow the progress of my book!

My purpose here is to provide encouragement, enrichment, and empowerment to you on your life journey. We need people in our lives who can help us navigate the difficult times, inspire us, and help us find joy in our days.  I hope that I can help you along the way.

Survivor Chic

Mastectomy Boutique

One of a kind post mastectomy shirts & more! I found it nice to have shirts that hid the tubes and made me look and feel at least somewhat normal. I found myself going out to places other than doctor appointments! They didn’t scream breast cancer patient! 10% of all sales will be donated to Hana’s Hope.

    Brain Cancer Diaries

    YouTube Vlog

    Don’t be confused by the name… Brain Cancer Diaries is about more than brain cancer or even its host Rudy Fischmann. While he does have the dreaded disease, this channel shines a light on all the issues that impact those with all types of cancers/serious chronic diseases and those around them as Rudy tries to deal with his own diagnosis and leave a record of himself for his children. He now uses his skills acquired from his previous career as a documentarian to help himself and others dealing with the many issues that arise from having a serious health diagnosis.
