Newsradio veteran reports on his own breast cancer

For those of us who live in New York City 1010 WINS-AM is a familiar frequency. Now one of their employees, Phil Pilato is speaking out about his bout with breast cancer.

His second article deals with the issue of breaking the news to friends, family, and co-workers.

I believe he is scheduled for surgery this week, we wish him all the best.



  1. I read his posts, they are terrific. What a wonderful thing he is doing for other men who may be faced with the same diagnosis or fears if they have suspicions about lumps they may find. I think it's interesting for female survivors, also, to read about a man's perspective of going through this illness. I don't know how he was able to have mammograms, but he did it (and admitted it was the most painful thing he'd ever felt).
    After my diagnosis, surgeries, treatments, etc. a male officer approached me about a lump he felt in his breast. I was so glad he was able to ask me about his suspicions. I referred him to my breast surgeon, and as it turned out, it was a benign lump ~ but it was a still a frightening ordeal.
    Phil will remain in my thoughts and prayers. Thanks for posting this, Suzanne.

  2. great comment
    Have a good weekend friend!
