THE STORY:

The Before Forty Initiative’s Mission is to educate as many women as possible about what they can gain by early detection: Their lives. Young women, particularly African American women, are at a greater risk of developing Triple Negative Breast Cancer, an aggressive form of the disease. The best chance of surviving this type of breast cancer is by finding it at its earliest stage. Waiting until the age of forty for a baseline screening test can have deadly consequences.

Our Before Forty Initiative is our top priority. Our outreach and awareness programs are dedicated to teaching young women that they must get their baseline screening at age 35 and age 30 if they are at high risk. Who is high risk? Women with a family history, dense breasts, and are of Ashkenazi or African American descent. We are gathering the support necessary to change insurance company policies to cover young women for baseline screening. Until there is a cure, early detection is all we have, before the age of 40.
