Breast Cancer Index Test – A Message to Women: Not Another Minute
We must take care of ourselves. We know this to be true. It’s so easy to say, but so much harder to actually execute, isn’t it?
The older that I get, the more I realize how truly important this is. As a busy wife and mother, that can be easier said than done but the fact of the matter is that if I’m not taking care of myself, then I’m not able to take care of anyone else.
You know that old saying “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today”? I’ve never understood that statement more than I do now.
After watching several dear friends fight cancer battles, I’ve realized that not only is knowledge powerful, but the quicker that you receive important knowledge and information – the better.
For these reasons, I’m committed to sharing this very important information.
Because Not Another Minute.
I recently shared with you my partnership with the maker of Breast Cancer Index to inform women of this very important option for those facing breast cancer.
I’m so very proud of my relationship with Breast Cancer Index because not only does it provide women with more knowledge but also can direct the course of their treatment and the choices that they may have along that journey.
Breast Cancer Index is the only commercially available genomic test that can 1) predict whether a breast cancer patient is likely to benefit from antiestrogen therapy after 5 years and 2) provide the patient’s individual risk of recurrence after 5 years.
I highly encourage to you learn more and read the intended use and limitations statement here.
Why is the Breast Cancer Index Test Important?
The more you know, the better decisions you can make. Education is everything when it comes to getting the very best medical care for YOU. For ME. For OURSELVES.
By reducing the fear and uncertainty surrounding treatment decisions for patients and their providers, Breast Cancer Index is an important test for extended anti-estrogen therapy decision-making.
And THAT is what makes this test so important.
A Message to Me. A Message to You. A Message to All of Us.
Sometimes it all comes down to making the decision to take control. The decision to take action. The decision to not allow anything to come in the way of getting to the place you need to be.
Sometimes to make those decisions you need answers. That’s where Breast Cancer Index comes in.
Because knowledge is power and a breast cancer diagnosis comes with a lot of uncertainty and fear.
Breast Cancer Index is driven by data and guided by experience.
Breast Cancer Index and the people behind the brand are committed to serving as an ally to the provider-patient team by supporting physicians in reducing uncertainty for patients around their extended anti-estrogen treatment.
Because making decisions requires information. Breast Cancer Index gives you that.
Because 100% of us women deserve to know what is right for them. This test is here to help determine what’s right for them.
Because (seriously) Not.Another.Minute.
Breast Cancer Index is shifting the paradigm when it comes to breast cancer treatment.
While some women do, nearly 95% of women with HR+, early-stage breast cancer do not benefit from endocrine therapy after five years.
100% of women deserve to know what is right for them. Just as Oncotype is the gold standard for determining likelihood of benefit from chemotherapy, this is the only commercially available, genomic test that determines whether patients are likely to benefit from anti-estrogen therapy after year five.
Because Not Another Minute.
If you or someone you love is struggling with a breast cancer diagnosis, please share this information with them. Please ask your doctor if the Breast Cancer Index test is right for you and find more information on the Breast Cancer Index website.
