Making Mission ~ Advocate For Your Health

Snip20160912_8.png

After her mother died of breast cancer, Gina Favors – just 17 at the time – did everything she could to avoid getting it herself. She ate a healthy diet, got plenty of physical activity, got regular mammograms, and paid attention to the way her breasts looked and felt.

As she got older, Favors noticed a new fullness in her left breast, but she chalked that up to maturity. She’d never heard that swelling or enlargement could be a symptom of breast cancer. And she also felt safe because year after year, her mammogram results came back normal. But in November 2010 at age 50, Favors noticed the nipple on that breast was slightly inverted. She went to the doctor to get checked out.
