Breast cancer awareness is crucial, particularly among black and brown women under 35. Let's shed light on the unique challenges they face and the importance of early detection.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among young women of color, and it tends to be diagnosed at later stages when treatment options are limited.We need to challenge the age restrictions on mammograms and advocate for early screenings, recognizing that breast cancer does not discriminate based on age.By providing accessible information about breast health and encouraging regular check-ups, we can empower young women to take control of their well-being.

Making a Change: Mammograms for Women Under 40

It's time to challenge the status quo and question the age restrictions on mammograms. Together, let's advocate for early screenings and ensure that young women have access to the tools they need to detect breast cancer in its early stages. By shifting the narrative, we can save lives and rewrite the future.

The Problem

The Solution

Young women under 40 face limitations in accessing mammogram screenings, leading to delayed detection.

By lowering the age threshold and increasing accessibility to mammograms, we can detect breast cancer earlier and improve treatment outcomes.

Education and awareness about breast cancer risks among young women are limited.

We need comprehensive educational campaigns targeting young women to increase awareness and encourage proactive health measures.

before cancer.....

Before my breast cancer diagnosis, I was incredibly shallow. I was obsessed with my appearance and always striving to live up to the model image I had created for myself.

I had always been so confident in my body, and now I felt like a stranger in my own skin. As a mother, I struggled with how to teach my daughter to be confident when I was struggling so much myself. How could I tell her to love herself when I didn't even recognize myself anymore? I was grateful for my surgeon's skilled hands and for getting the cancer out, but I hated the results.
