Let's Talk About Your Breasts

We'd like to partner with you to raise awareness in a positive, uplifting way across cultures where conversations about the body and health are often silenced.  We're focusing on diverse women who refuse to be silenced and responding to “shushing” with “let’s talk about it, let’s talk about your breasts.”

Let's focus on the importance of women sharing their stories with one another, and bring awareness that 40 is the age at which every woman should begin receiving screening mammograms.

Kim Roxie

Meet Kim Roxie, the founder of LAMIK Beauty. After losing her mother to breast cancer, she became a strong advocate for The Rose in the Black community.

Today she’s sharing her story and reminding all women not to be silent when it comes to breast health. We must respond to the “shushing” with “let’s talk about it, let’s talk about your breasts.”

Elizabeth Esparza

We want to introduce you to Elizabeth Esparza, a Patient Navigator at The Rose. She knows that in her culture, it can be challenging to talk about uncomfortable health issues. Hispanic women tend to put themselves last, which could be one of the reasons so many have advanced breast cancer.

It’s time to break the cycle. If we don’t take care of ourselves, we can’t take care of others.

Dr. Lori Choi

For many, breasts are a taboo topic of conversation. It's no wonder then that many don't discuss serious topics like breast cancer. But if you don't talk about it with your family and friends, who do you discuss it with? Meet Dr. Lori Choi from I’ll Have What She’s Having. She knows cultural stigmas need to be challenged, and she's doing the work of bringing this conversation to the forefront in her community.
