Join us on October 28th, 2019 for the 5th Annual Long Island Beauty Ball!
As many of you may know, Maureen Tara Nelson, the owner, and CEO of MTN Matchmaking survived cancer six years ago. It all started with her regular visit to the doctor due to her sister in law, and four close friends being diagnosed. But it was a breast examination and a sonogram that led to her diagnosis of breast cancer. Because of her early diagnosis, she was able to avoid chemotherapy, although she endured a double mastectomy and reconstruction through a stomach-flam surgery.
Most people these days avoid going to the doctor because of self-breast examinations. Even though they can be effective, statistically the use of self-examinations leads to the avoidance of doctor appointments. Maureen’s tumor was too small to feel or see on a mammogram; It only was visible in a 3D sonogram.
