Husband and wife both diagnosed with breast cancer

Local News

Breast cancer is common in women, but considered rare in men.  So, you can imagine the surprise when one Ohio man learned a lump on his chest was, in fact, breast cancer. And, it was even more of a shock when his wife was diagnosed as well. 

Ken and Jane Gremling will celebrate their 47th wedding anniversary in November.  The Gremlings have a lot of things in common but never expected breast cancer to be one of them. Statistics show breast cancer impacts about 1/8 women, but only 1/800 men.  

Ken had a mastectomy at Cleveland Clinic and just five months later, Jane’s mammogram revealed a mass. 

The Gremlings are now both cancer-free and say that whether you’re a man or a woman, early diagnosis saves lives.
