Thank you to State Representative Nicole Collier for your work in helping to making 3D mammograms accessible to more women!

Thanks to the leadership of State Representative Nicole Collier, patients who are at least 35 years old have access to a more thorough 3-D mammogram at no additional cost. Be sure to ask for the 3-D exam at your next appointment.

A new state law in Texas requires insurance companies to cover more thorough 3-D mammograms just as they have the more traditional 2-D screenings. But patients may have to request them.

African-American women in the United States are about twice as likely as women of all other races to develop an aggressive form of breast cancer known as triple negative. Many believe it’s a product of their race or genetics, but science has found that the risk of this deadly disease can be drastically reduced if parents help their daughters do just one thing – help them stay lean.

7 years ago today, while pregnant, I heard those words: You have breast cancer. I would later learn that I had an aggressive triple negative breast cancer and would undergo chemo and surgery while pregnant. Today I spent time with Susan G. Komen Greater Fort Worth staff working on an upcoming Hispanic breast cancer initiative. Stay tuned for more info! Celebrate with me by donating $7 toward my Race for the Cure fundraising goal of $700: http://info-komen.org/goto/TeamRoxy2018

Grandma Rosa completed chemo! Thank you to everyone who has kept her in thoughts and prayers. The journey is not over yet but I’m extremely proud of her. Thanks to The Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders for taking great care of her just as they did with me.
