"We will now recommit ourselves to live up to the vision of Rosemary Williams and the work of Marc and Men Against Breast Cancer as we reach out to the often unacknowledged others in this journey, the love partners of the breast cancer patient. We take great encouragement as we enter the 5th year of performances in 2018 ."
