Mobile Phone Users: I am not sure why the "ipetition" doesn't show on all mobile phones and am working on this. If you can, please take the time to sign the petition using a tablet or computer. I hope to figure this out soon. Thank you for your patience.

Breast Diagnostic Centre (BDC) - Washington State
Mi-Jung Lee has a link to a website in the USA called Are You Dense? The site's mission statement reads, " Are You Dense, Inc. is dedicated to informing the public about dense breast tissue and its significance for the early detection of breast cancer." The site has lots of information and a story about a doctor who ended up with Stage III breast cancer. I can definitely relate to her experience! Between May 17, 2013 and November 25, 2013, I had 8 "dose-dense" sessions of chemo - 2 weeks apart, 28 days of radiation and then a modified radical mastectomy. On the 'Are You Dense?' website you can learn the fourteen states that have density reporting legislation to protect women from delayed diagnoses. Let's get the word out and try to make BC the first province to have the same kind of legislation.
