In honor of International Women’s Day March 8, we’re working to spread the word about taking care of your breast health and encouraging the women in your life to do the same. We’re re-sharing this popular and very relevant post from 2014. Heather’s work continues today.
Heather Reimer is on a mission — a mission to educate women everywhere about breast tissue type. For women with dense breasts, knowing your breast tissue type is absolutely critical, as cancers embedded in dense breast tissue are not always detectable with a mammogram alone. Dense breast tissue requires a whole breast ultrasound screening to get a complete breast health picture.
Whole Breast Ultrasound for Dense Breast Tissue
Heather knows this firsthand. She has dense breasts, and in this video she shares her story about finding breast cancer during a SonoCiné automated whole breast ultrasound screening — cancer that went undetected with her mammogram screening alone.
As a result of that experience, Heather founded Each One. Tell One. — a movement to encourage women to pass along this information to others and to prompt those with dense breast and implants to consult with their doctor to schedule a whole breast ultrasound screening.
