Learn Look Locate was founded in 2018 as a global movement of critical education for the early detection of breast cancer. Cynthia Jordan, Founder and CEO, is a breast cancer survivor who was diagnosed with Stage 2B breast cancer, even though she had annual mammograms. Immediately following her diagnosis, Cynthia realized that scrambling through the anxiety of the internet, coupled with the need to self-educate about her disease and possible treatments, did not help her level of extreme anxiety. Cynthia decided that she would do all she could to ensure other women would be aware of the importance of early detection, as well as diagnosis and treatment options available, and—perhaps most importantly—the Community necessary to help women find a place for answers and support. She did not want anyone to not be informed on all of the information she discovered once being diagnosed, and she wanted people to be empowered with as much knowledge as possible, but in a calm and soothing manner.
Activated, Cynthia created Learn Look Locate: a welcoming web presence that resonates with women in all phases of cancer awareness, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment because it is built with and for them. Questions get answered, experiences are shared, and offerings are tracked down and promoted—all based on the Community’s submissions, needs, and wants. Learn Look Locate is a web community for educating, inspiring, and connecting.
Educating: Learn Look Locate provides essential information about breast cancer, from detection through recovery. Skipping all of the misinformation and confusing medical jargon, Learn Look Locate delivers education in simple, easy-to-understand language. Select medical practitioners provide information, resources, and assistance to help ensure a sense of connection and understanding.
Inspiring: Learn Look Locate wants to inspire patients and their loved ones that their circumstances are manageable and that there are others who have been though similar experiences. This is done through first-person testimonials, on the site’s blog and various social media channels.
Connecting: Learn Look Locate helps to connect women with others who have been through similar situations and who can provide a calming acceptance of sharing and healing together. Making connections is a core concept of who we are and what we do.
