The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Program is offering a support group for men with breast cancer, beginning later this month.

The group tentatively will start on Jan. 28 and will meet for eight weeks on Monday evenings from 7 to 8:30.

The group will be a place to find support, learn from others and share the unique concerns of men facing breast cancer, organizers said.
