Learn Look Locate was launched in 2018 after my diagnosis of stage 2b breast cancer. I was 52 years old when diagnosed and had received normal mammograms every year report stating I had dense breasts. I never knew this was a huge risk factor for breast cancer because dense breasts can mask a tumor.
I realized there was a huge void of information easily accessible for busy women to really understand what a tumor could feel like and all the other early warning signs for breast cancer. I also didn’t want any woman to go through this journey alone, I wanted to create a safe, comforting beautiful place for women to feel a sense of hope and inspiration. A platform where they could connect and meet others going through the same journey.
If I felt the lack of education this way, I suspected other women did too, especially younger women. So, I decided to launch a global movement to help women learn, look and locate.
