Cancer & Black History ,

This the one ya'll
This woman right here !! This woman is the fucking truth ! 

Dr. Green's passion for cancer research was ignited when she lost both her aunt and uncle to cancer. Determined to find a solution, she pursued a career in science and earned her bachelor's degree in physics from Alabama A&M University. She then went on to complete her master's and doctoral degrees in physics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).

During her graduate studies, Dr. Green developed a novel cancer treatment method using laser-activated nanoparticles. This innovative approach involves injecting nanoparticles into cancer cells and then using laser light to activate the nanoparticles, which selectively destroy the cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue. Her research has shown promising results in preclinical studies and has the potential to revolutionize cancer treatment.

In addition to her groundbreaking research, Dr. Green is a passionate advocate for cancer awareness and education, particularly within underserved communities. She believes that everyone, regardless of their socioeconomic background, should have access to the latest advancements in cancer treatment and care. Dr. Green actively engages in community outreach programs, speaking engagements, and mentorship initiatives to inspire and empower young people, especially girls and minorities, to pursue careers in science and medicine.

Dr. Green's work has garnered recognition and numerous accolades. She was awarded a $1.1 million grant from the Veterans Affairs Historically Black Colleges and Universities Research Scientist Training Program, which supported her research on cancer treatment. In 2016, she was also awarded a $1.1 million grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs to further develop her laser-activated nanoparticle therapy.

Dr. Hadiyah-Nicole Green's dedication to cancer research and her innovative approach to cancer treatment have the potential to transform the field of oncology. Her advocacy for cancer awareness and education, particularly within underserved communities, is helping to bridge the gap in healthcare disparities. Dr. Green's work serves as an inspiration to aspiring scientists and underscores the importance of diversity and inclusion in scientific research and medical advancements.

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 even dreamed of posing for Playboy one day. But after a double mastectomy, I am now so self-conscious that I can hardly recognize myself. It took me almost a month to look down at my chest after the surgery. I cried and cried for hours in the bathroom, wondering how this could be happening to me. 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. When people say that a mastectomy is not a boob job, they are right. The scars and the fact that I will never have sensation again at 34
