Healthy woman's breast cancer journey complicated without early detection mammogram.

633 views 6 months ago
Cindy, a fitness instructor, shares how her journey with breast cancer was complicated because she had elected not to get a mammogram.

"I had none of the risk factors that you would expect," said Cindy. "I was a non-smoker, non-drinker. I was in very good shape. I was at a healthy weight. I ate healthy."

Had her cancer been detected early she "would have had the option to have maybe just a lumpectomy and radiation rather than radical surgery and chemotherapy," she said.

Healthy women without symptoms get diagnosed with breast cancer every day.
