I've asked Admin to flag this post. I believe this person is trying to scam all of us that have cancer. Please don't buy into it. Be safe, be smart.

Are there any plans in the works to convert this "in person" group to a "virtual" group considering the pandemic?

REPLY

Hi @jubilee, at this time there are no plans to convert the Florida in-person support group to a regularly scheduled virtual group. That may change and it will be posted here.

In the meantime, you can always join the community and conversations in the Breast Cancer group here: https://connect.mayoclinic.org/group/breast-cancer/

How common is it for male breast cancer patients to join in for this support group?
