Leaving no soldier behind we are committed to develop a new era in breast/ chest gradual education and implement social justice in the healthcare system.
The Breast Cancer Epidemic
1 in 227 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with breast cancer between the ages of 30 and 40. Also, there is a 2% yearly increase in metastatic breast cancer found in young women.
Breast cancer occurs about once in every 3,000 pregnancies, and occurs most often in women aged 32 to 38 years. An estimated 30% or more of all breast cancer in young women is diagnosed in the few years after a woman has had a baby.
1 in a 1000 men in the US will be diagnosed with breast cancer. Because of lack of education and resources targeted to men there is a higher mortality and delay in seeking treatment.
We realized that whatever was done in the past to create awareness didn't work for the younger generation. We can no longer overlook this epidemic!
Breast / Chest Health in Schools
Let Litty come to your school, college or any establishment and let the next generation practice early prevention when it comes to a wide spread disease like breast cancer. Litty believes education should start at puberty and a breast health curriculum should be implemented by a mandate in every school in the country. Her motto is Realization, Education, and Action, using tools such as music and social media to create a lasting connection.
Political Ventures and trifold agenda
Action, not awareness! The got checked? campaign is working hard to bring changes to the healthcare and educational system. It's a trifold agenda with three main goals. The first goal recently accomplished is called Shannon's law, a bill that finally lowered mammogram age to 35. The second goal is a National got checked? day and the third goal is making breast / chest education part of the school curriculum.
See how the got checked? campaign is developing the building blocks of breast health in New York State.
