Power Over Breast Cancer was founded in 2015 by Nancy Valentino. After finding a lump during her monthly self-breast exam, Nancy was diagnosed with an invasive ductal carcinoma (HER2+) in her right breast on October 8th, 2015 at the age of 31. She underwent a bi-lateral mastectomy at the end of October 2015, and began chemotherapy treatment in early December 2015.
Because of the early detection of the lump in her breast, the tumor was only 1.4cm in size, and no cancer cells spread to her lymph nodes. While this has been a difficult experience to fight through, Nancy decided that something positive should come out of this battle, and that she was meant to help other women who are affected by breast cancer.
Power Over Breast Cancer is a movement focused on raising breast cancer awareness and promoting early detection by self-breast exams. Power Over Breast Cancer is also proud to support Help The Fight, an amazing breast cancer non-profit organization that supports breast cancer fighters.
