Mike Greenhalgh, 61, from Northants
I’d been a GP for 27 years but had never seen a case of male breast cancer. But in April 2014, I discovered two lumps in my breasts – one on each side.
My wife Jill, 60, bugged me to go to the hospital.
A few weeks later, I was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer and needed a double mastectomy.
I also had lymph-gland clearance surgery, chemo and radiotherapy.
‘I feel so guilty, you had breast cancer and I didn’t,’ my twin brother Bill told me.
I’m one of five – and, after my diagnosis, we were all tested for BRCA genes.
Four of us tested positive for the BRCA2 mutation, including Bill.
Jill and I joined the Moonwalk that summer.
