Famous Men Who Battled Breast Cancer
Senator Edward Brooke
Edward Brooke is known for a ground breaking political career. He broke barriers by being the first black man to be elected to the senate by popular vote in 1966. The three-term Massachusetts senator was the last until 1993, and is still the only African American to be re-elected. He was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2002, and since then has dedicated his time to raising awareness to the disease.
