Welcome to Pink S.H.O.E.S., Inc.

If popular opinion were true, that young women don't get breast cancer, Pink S.H.O.E.S., Inc. would not exist.  We all know the TRUTH, young women CAN and DO get breast cancer.  Founded in June 2011 by two friends La' Kesha Jackson, a breast cancer survivor, & her friend Ganesa Taylor, who both felt the need to help educate & bring awareness to young women on the disease.

 

Our mission is raising awareness, educating & promoting early detection to young women 40 and under.

 

PSI focuses on three essential goals...

Raising Awareness - although October is National Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pink S.H.O.E.S., Inc.  believes in raising awareness & educating throughout the year.  We remain dedicated to empowering young women to take charge of their own breast health.

Promoting Early Detection - early detection is critically important, especially for women at higher risk.  For women who have been diagnosed at the earliest stage of breast cancer when the tumor is small & localized, early diagnosis can make a huge difference.

    We promote early detection by the following steps:

  • Perform monthly breast self-examination (BSE) and perform it faithfully at the same time each month.

  • See your healthcare provider for a clinical breast exam (CBE) at least once a year.

  • If you are under the age of 40, most imsurance companies won't cover mammograms.  If you feel something suspicious in your breast, insist on digital mammography, sonograms or some of the newer, more advanced technologies that help detect tumors.

Educating - we are usually lead to believe that breast cancer is an older women's disease.  When in fact about 10 percent of all breast cancers occur in women under 40.  We are dedicated to eliminating breast cancer disparities to young women by hosting education seminars at local libraries, high schools & colleges.
