    From an article in Marie Claire magazine, I found out that a lot of the “pink” products out on the market don’t have any money that goes to actual cancer research. Here’s the article if you’re interested: http://www.marieclaire.com/world-reports/news/breast-cancer-business-scams?click=main_sr

    If you have dense breast a mammogram alone isn’t enough; you also need to have an ultrasound because some things might not show on the mammogram because of the density.

    I have learned how to check yourself for lumps.

    After an earlier scare, I learned to advocate for myself more, insist on additional reviews and an ultrasound. As the poster above mentioned, some things show up on an ultrasound instead of the mammo because of dense breast tissue.

    This month Gov. Brown in CA vetoed a bill that would alert women if they have dense breast tissue, which could obscure cancer detection in a mammogram. If you’re in California, contact Gov. Brown and let him know what you think about it at: http://gov.ca.gov/m_contact.php

    Article on the bill is here: http://articles.latimes.com/2011/oct/12/local/la-me-brown-cancer-20111012

    I learned that it is very important to check yourself out, early check ups are important, and to check any changes in our bodies. Its very important to take care of ourselves in order to prevent or to be able to cure such a horrible disease.

    One thing that I have learned or has been stressed is to make sure you do self breast exams. Also, breast cancer also affects men not just women.

    I’ve learned the importance of screening myself every month.

  • Aimee Jongejan

    During BCAM I’ve learned the importance of self exams. I always thought that going to get my yearly was enough because I’m so young, but this month I’ve been reminded how important it is for us to get to know our ladies during different times of the month so we can detect if there are any changes
