“Our mission is to create a global movement of critical education for the early detection of breast cancer.” —Cynthia Jordan, Founder

BREAST CANCER

“Breast cancer is the most commonly occurring cancer in women and the second most common cancer overall. There were over 2 million new cases in 2018.”

Although some risk reduction might be achieved with prevention, such strategies do little to help in low- and middle-income countries where breast cancer is diagnosed in very late stages. Early detection remains the cornerstone of breast cancer control.

EARLY EDUCATION

Although breast cancer in young adults is rare, more than 250,000 living in the United States today were diagnosed under age 40. In young adults, breast cancer tends to be diagnosed in its later stages. It also tends to be more aggressive. Young adults have a higher mortality rate. As well as a higher risk of metastatic recurrence. (SOURCE: youngsurvival.org)

Nearly 80% of young women diagnosed with breast cancer find their breast abnormality themselves. (SOURCE: Ruddy, K. et al. “Presentation of breast cancer in young women,” Journal of Clinical Oncology 27:15S.)

FOUNDER STORY

Cynthia Jordan, Founder of Learn Look Locate
CYNTHIA JORDAN

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.

I NEVER KNEW

  • Dense breasts were a risk factor for breast cancer
  • Breast cancer was silent and painless
  • Where breast cancer could be found
  • What a tumor felt like
  • Ashkenazi Jews have a tendency to carry the BRCA gene

I FELT

  • Overwhelmed
  • Anxious
  • Scared
  • Alone
