A. Roufa, MD - The Photo Doctor will be exhibiting his photography in our gallery.
"The title of this exhibition reflects the fact that breast cancer is world-wide and the photos represent places I have been as a survivor. One of the ways to fight this disease is with education, thus Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I want men to beware and be aware. There are so many more deaths in men, percentage wise, because the disease is discovered later........they don't believe they have breasts, therefore how can they get breast cancer!"
10% of sales from this exhibition will be donated to The American Cancer Society.

The American Cancer Society estimates that about 2,260 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnoses in men and about 430 men will die from breast cancer.
I am a physician who has practiced Obstetrics and Gynecology for 30 yearts. During that time I have counseled thousands of women on self-breast examinations and breast disease.
I am a husband whose wife had breast cance for twenty -two years of our twenty-four year marriage. She died of lung cancer approximately seventeen years ago.
I am a man who had breast cancer in 1991 and underwent a mastectomy followed by chemotherapy.
My art today proves you can live and work after cancer.
