Mission Accomplished – Gov. Dalrymple Signs Dense Breast Notification Bill Into Law
12 May

I apologize in advance for this post being so long, but I wanted to acknowledge those who offered support along the way. When I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2011, I never imagined that I would one day be fighting for a law that would notify people in North Dakota following mammography if they had dense breast tissue. It was a tough challenge, much like my breast cancer battle, but after overcoming a Do Not Pass recommendation from both…..

I am thrilled to let you know that ND HB 1370-Mammography Results Notices Regarding Dense Breast Tissue passed the ND Senate on a vote of 33-13, 1 Not Voting this afternoon and is headed to Gov.

The quest continues to do the right thing in terms of notification of breast density to all North Dakotans undergoing a mammogram – to tell them if they have dense breast tissue, so they can find potential breast cancer at its earliest stage.

I wanted to take a moment today to share a recap on the All About Pink Breast Cancer Awareness Event at West Acres on October 10th.  All of the participants were so thoughtful and brought unique ways to impart information about their organizations. The decorated bra that Bras on Broadway had displayed was absolutely beautiful – thanks to them for bringing it out, having a table, and continuing their event at the end of October to help those facing breast cancer!
