Call to Action
The No Surrender Breast Cancer Foundation launched the Before Forty Initiative to save the lives of young women who don’t even know they have breast cancer, yet.
Until there is a cure, the ONLY defense we have is through early detection. This includes, monthly, self breast exams, baseline mammograms* starting at the age of 35 and at age 30 if you are from a high risk group particularly women who are African American, of Ashkenazi heritage or if there is a family history of the disease; and women who have what are known as “dense breasts.”
*MAMMOGRAMS ALONE ARE NOT THE ONLY TOOL
We encourage women to get breast ultrasounds as a follow up to their baseline mammogram, because some cancers show up on one test and not the other. And if anything is found to be inconclusive or suspicious, we urge all women to never “watch and wait” but to insist on a breast MRI for a more complete view of the breast.
We support the use of the new breast “pap test” which can detect cancerous cells in women as young as 25 years old. ...read more
