Thanks to YOU, the State Legislature has Passed the PBCC’s Dense Breast Notification Act. Now on to the Governor’s Desk!

October PL 2 ImageGreat News! The state legislature has passed the PBCC’s Dense Breast Notification Act. This legislation, sponsored by PA Sen. Robert Mensch, will require radiologists in Pennsylvania to notify women of their breast density. From here, the bill goes to PA Governor Tom Corbett for his signature before it becomes law.  Thank you for contacting your state lawmakers to support this important legislation.

YOU made it happen!

Dense breast tissue increases a woman’s risk of being diagnosed with breast cancer at a later, more dangerous, less treatable stage. Many women with dense breast tissue do not know they have it, and a mammogram may not be enough to detect a lump or irregularity in the breast. The Dense Breast Notification Act will change that.

“This legislation will save lives. On behalf of the PA Breast Cancer Coalition and the thousands of women in Pennsylvania who may now become more educated about their own breast health, I want to thank our state lawmakers for their efforts in passing The Dense Breast Notification Act,” said PBCC President and Founder Pat Halpin-Murphy. “We commend PA Sen. Robert Mensch, PA Sen. Pat Vance, PA Rep. Matthew Baker. PA Rep. Karen Boback and PA Rep. Mike Turzai for their hard work, dedication and passion for this critical issue. This vote can and will make a difference.”

“Dense breast tissue is a relatively common condition, but it can hide abnormalities and complicate early detection of breast cancer,” said bill Sponsor PA Sen. Robert Mensch. “Notification will allow women to know their own breast density. With that information, they can talk to their doctor about what their breast density rating means and whether they are at a higher risk for breast cancer. That’s a discussion that should happen, and this bill ensures that women will have the information in hand to have that discussion.”

Each day, 32 women in Pennsylvania are diagnosed with breast cancer. The PBCC’s mission is to help find a cure for breast cancer and to improve the quality of breast cancer education, research, programming and outreach in the state. The Dense Breast Notification Act can assure that every woman who receives a mammogram is informed of her breast density along with the potential risk factors and additional screening options available.

Thank you for turning awareness into action and saving lives!
