Cecil: A man on a mission

Cecil Herrin is a man on a mission. As a breast cancer survivor, Cecil’s mission is to educate about breast cancer in men. “Take care of your body” is his constant refrain to encourage men to take care of themselves and not to hesitate to see a doctor if they discover a lump in their breast. His goal is to reach as many people as he can with this message.

Cecil is also a man of action. In June 2015, he established the annual “Cecil Herrin’s Men’s Breast & Prostate Cancer Walk” to spread the word about men’s breast cancer and to raise funds to help men get medical care if they are diagnosed with breast or prostate cancer.
