October is no longer represented by the colors of its foliage, it’s Pink. Breast Cancer Awareness Month is in full effect and many stories of strong women survivors are shared. Overlooked is the one percent of breast cancer that occurs in MEN, and in filmmaker Chris Thibault’s case, young men. The 31 year old was given a diagnosis last October most men would never dream of, stage 2 breast cancer. This past year Chris has undergone both chemotherapy and radiation treatments and has been documenting his journey. He hopes to share his story and shed more light on issues regarding the disease, particularly in males. CHRIS TEEBO FILMS has released a trailer for an exciting Breast Cancer Documentary Film which is currently in production.
After ruling out genetics, Chris was determined to explore often dismissed environmental causes. He came across a huge development that may have given him his answer. The link, a chemical he was exposed to years ago was also present in one of the largest water contamination cases in U.S. History. Health officials believed as many as 1 million people at Military Base Camp Lejeune were exposed to toxic water, 85 of whom developed Male Breast Cancer.
Chris’s eyes were also opened to many issues in healthcare including communication with insurance companies, dismissing environmental causes, lack of resources providing examples of similar cases, and minimal information on treatment and side effects in men vs women. These are all elements he explores in the film.
As this year of treatment ends, Chris’ journey of digging into these issues has only just begun. One of his goals is to find as many men who have been affected by male breast cancer, past or present, as possible.
