What is Male Breast Cancer ? 5 Ideas to Raise Fund for It

by Daniel M. writter

You don't often hear about male breast cancer. While it is a very rare condition, it can cripple the patients financially due to costly treatments. Hence, many turn to fundraise to meet their financial needs. Keep reading to learn more about male breast cancer and how can you raise money for this cause!

Although rare, breast cancer affects 1 out of 833 men and can be fatal.

Men also have breast tissue in the torso region that can develop cysts that turn into tumours. A cyst is formed when a cell of the breast tissue starts multiplying out of control, triggering neighbouring cells to do the same. This creates a tumour and causes breast cancer in men.

Fundraisers help financially support cancer patients' treatment and support various cancer research to give the patients hope for a better tomorrow. Here are a few ideas for a breast cancer fundraiser.


  1. Bake Sale: Bake sales can be done in schools, colleges, communities and even online. It is a great way to involve the maximum number of people and raise money through selling delicious edibles! You can add a blue-frosting theme to promote the cause. You can also prepare small boxes of goodies and gift them to cancer patients in your local hospital. While you can transfer a part of the proceeds to raising funds for those affected, you can also ask customers to visit a donation page and learn more about it and contribute. 

  2. Family Day OutPick a beautiful day and collaborate with a farmhouse to invite your friends on a picnic with their families! You can arrange for games, farm activities like horse riding, fruit-picking and charge a small fee for the activities to raise money. You can also promote your local catering business by arranging snacks and meals for the day. Remember to include the donation link in the invite so the guests can make their donations.

  3. Halloween PartyAs you know, October is breast cancer awareness month and also the time for the coolest party ever! You can organise an exclusive online Halloween party for your office or area and include games, rides and entertainment. You can include the donation link in the event and share it with the attendees. You can also collect the money raised through games and donate it to the cause.

  4. Game for a CauseAre you a serious gamer? Host a gaming event with your gaming friends and raise money for breast cancer. You can organise an exclusive invitation-only event and donate the tick profit to your cause. You can conduct an open-to-all gaming event and promote it on social media along with the link to the campaign page and donation link.

  5. Virtual Stand-up Event: doesn't enjoy a good laugh? Collaborate with a comedian and set up a virtual stand-up event for your peers to enjoy. Make the cost of the ticket affordable, keeping in mind the entertainment fees as well. You can also tell the performer to say a few lines about the cause to ensure people know where their money is going. Don't forget to collaborate with cancer patients and invite them to the event cost-free to interact with the donors.


Go Online For Your Fundraisers 

Due to the current circumstances, real-life fundraisers are less feasible. Instead, people are moving towards online galas, Netflix movie marathons, online treadmill walkathons, etc., to raise money for breast cancer. An important thing to remember is that any promotion or campaign you create should convey the urgency of the matter. 

You can also go for medical crowdfunding through safe and reliable crowdfunding platforms such as Ketto that let you raise funds for the cause from the safe confines of your home.
