A patient advocacy movement started in Connecticut in 2009 to give women the same information their docs have about THEIR dense breast tissue. Inspired by patient Nancy M. Cappello, Ph.D., her desire was and continues to ensure that no woman suffers the tragedy of a late stage diagnosis, despite have faithful yearly mammograms. A grassroots advocacy movement was born as state legislative champions protect the safety of its citizens.
