The Breast Health Issue for Better Breast Cancer Screenings.
Three steps to better screening methods, support and the new mandate.
Feel Them on The First, a campaign to perform your monthly self breast exam is a powerful way to get to know your version of normal when performed regularly.
You'll get to know your body, connect and learn what needs closer attention. On the first of every month, but especially this month of October, breast cancer and breast health month I want to share with you the resources I created to walk you through a thorough self breast exam and provide you with the next steps for navigating your mammogram appointment.
I learned about many gaps in the screening process during my own breast cancer diagnosis, especially regarding how dense breast tissue was screened and how incomplete a mammogram can be. I saw how many women were sadly falling through the cracks with inaccurate information and I had to do something to arm women with information to advocate and navigate the system to gain access to their best possible outcomes.
That's when I created the nonprofit organization For The Love Of Cups to help me get the information in the hands of the people that needed it most.
