And nice to meet you. I'm Lindsay and I'm the co-founder of Women Catalysts, a community that helps women get ahead without losing their hearts.
Two weeks after my 33rd birthday, I was diagnosed with Stage IIIC breast cancer. Since then, I've been chronicling my diagnosis and treatment for Tonic, VICE's health channel, and speaking publicly about cancer awareness.
Did you know...
- 1 in 8 women in America will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime
- 85% of them will not have a close family relative with breast cancer
- if you're diagnosed at Stage 0 or Stage I, you have almost a 100% survival rate
Early detection is so important. I'd love to come talk to your company or group about breast cancer awareness. You can email me here or at the link below if you'd like to learn more.
