This past Saturday evening I attended the 8th annual Are You Dense? Music Fest, as both a guest and an award recipient. I was honored with the "Champion" award and my close friend, and breast cancer advocate, Jan Kritzman, was given the "Queen Esther" award. It was a truly memorable evening and I am very appreciative to Dr. Nancy Cappello for acknowledging myself and Jan at such a wonderful event. Nancy has advanced the field of breast imaging across the U.S. and worldwide, through the use of screening breast ultrasound in patients with dense breast tissue. I encourage women to view her website, www.areyoudense.org, and learn for yourself the great impact of breast ultrasound in detecting cancers in patients with dense breast tissue.
