Our Mission:

To ensure that women with dense breast tissue have access to an early breast cancer diagnosis. To that end, women need to be informed of their breast density, the limitations of mammography to find cancer in dense breast tissue and the increased risk factor of dense breast tissue.

Goals of Are You Dense Advocacy, Inc.

  • Advocate for and support State and Federal legislative and Regulatory efforts to standardize the communication of dense breast tissue to women.
  • Advocate for and support State and Federal legislative and Regulatory efforts for access to reliable breast screening technologies for women with dense breast tissue.
  • Ensure that the communication of a patient's breast tissue composition is provided across the globe for access to realiable breast screening tools to reduce mortality from the most common cancer in women both in the developed and less developed world.
