Men and women both get Breast cancer

My husband was diagnosed with breast cancer after finding what he thought was a bruise in his chest. He underwent a radical mastectomy and 6 months of chemotherapy. We thought we had it beat. 18 months later, while I was doing chemotherapy for breast cancer also, he developed a persistent cough. Upon having an MRI they found metastatic tumors in his lungs.
He battled for almost 2 years with the cancer spreading to his abdominal wall, and small tumors on his bones. He finally lost his fight this past December (12/8/21).
I went on to have a lumpectomy and lymph node removal after chemotherapy. Currently, I am cancer free.
