We’re almost there. The PBCC is working on a crucial piece of legislation scheduled for a full House vote next week. Senate Bill 358 would require mammographers to notify women with dense breasts. Women with dense breasts have an increased risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer at a later, more dangerous stage. The State House decides next Wednesday.
This is where YOU come in…
The House of Representatives needs to know the importance of this legislation. We have created an advocacy toolkit with more information including video, sample letters and details on dense breast tissue. Call your state representative and tell him or her to support legislation that would save lives in PA!
If you’re a person who was diagnosed with breast cancer at a late stage because of dense breast tissue, please contact us at 800-377-8828 or email us at Info@PABreastCancer.org.
