We often talk about breast self-exams and A low dose x-ray picture of the breast that allows a doctor to view glandular tissue and determine the presence of cancer. in the breast health programs we do in schools, workplaces, and community events. And for good reason! Both exams are part of the 3-pronged approach to early detection. They catch breast cancer early, in its most treatable stages.
We all lead busy lives, though, and sometimes it’s hard to remember to do a monthly breast self-exam and an annual mammogram. So, The Maurer Foundation has developed a custom breast health reminder service. We are super excited to offer this new program to the community because it gets us all closer to our important mission of saving lives. Please take the time today to sign up for a reminder and send a link to your mother, sister, daughter, girlfriend, and any other woman in your life. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime and breast self-exams and mammograms truly make a difference in the outcome of this terrible disease.
