Just in time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Mary J.
The conversation was made for many reasons that black women do not get the best health care. Time to talk, Mary J. Let him think We do not discuss such issues in our society.
Blizzard said According to Blavity, he was not very knowledgeable about mammograms until he was 40 years old.
She said, “I didn’t know about breast cancer or mammograms until I was 40, and I was in the music business. And I was trying to take care of myself. My body started talking, so I started listening.
Bliss added that she found a doctor who helped her become more diverse because it was not discussed at an early age.
“I found out about it at GYN. They don’t discuss it when we’re kids. They don’t say, ‘Go get a mammogram.’ You’ll learn about it as you get older, he said. “So, they don’t talk about it, and that’s why they live in the hospital for two weeks. And now you know about it. That’s why it’s so important to me.”
Mary J. Bliss shared that her family members had died of breast cancer in addition to uterine cancer.
“My aunt died of breast cancer. My grandmother died of cervical cancer, and one of my aunts died of lung cancer. He talked about what happened when people found out too late because of wealth and education. “What happens is they end up in the hospital, and no one in our family has anyone to talk to about it when we were little.”
When discussing community inequality, Dr. Arlene Richardson said that we develop breast cancer at a young age.
“We develop breast cancer at a young age. About 25-28% of our breast cancers are under the age of 50. Eight percent are under the age of 40,” she said. Another 12 to 1,300 black women will die every year. Why should we do that? ”
Mary J. “Take care of that. Take care of your health.”
