Michelle’s devastating journey into breast cancer, through breast density, sensitively told on film.

Please share this with your friends and family when you have watched it.

Michele, who is featured in the above short film, was diagnosed with Stage 3 Invasive Lobular Carcinoma, a form of breast cancer, in April 2014, despite the fact that she had recently had a “normal” mammogram.  She first learned that she had dense breasts at the time of her breast cancer diagnosis.  Prior to her diagnosis, no health care provider ever told her she had dense breasts and that dense breasts make mammograms difficult to read and are a risk factor for breast cancer.  At the time of diagnosis, Michele’s breast mass was over 7cm.   As a woman with a history of cystic breasts, and armed with a “normal” mammogram, Michele dismissed the mass.  Unfortunately, the mass in her breast was hidden by the dense tissue.

You are not dense, but are your breasts?
