Final thought… PBS Hawaiʻi is humbled to have been a part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month. As the end of October nears, it is important to remember, although rare, breast cancer can occur in men. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 2,650 men are diagnosed with invasive breast cancer each year, 530 of them will die. I learned of this rarity during my senior year in high school in a Human Relations class. My classmate Cassandra Bowman wanted us to meet her famous dad Pierre Bowman, a long-time drama critic for the Honolulu Star Bulletin and The Honolulu Advertiser. Mr. Bowman stood before the entire class and stunned every young man in the room when he said, “Gentlemen, I have breast cancer.” I turned to Cassandra who was feverishly wiping away her tears. “Yes, men can get it too!” he continued. “Know your body.” Mr. Bowman fought breast cancer for four years and died in September in 1986. A lesson learned and never forgotten. Rest In Aloha Mr. Bowman.
