Ratings and Reviews
Resources at your fingertips
As an oncology nurse navigator specializing in breast cancer, I can attest to the importance of shared decision making. Many patients are either unaware or uneducated on their treatment and surgical options. This can create the feeling of being overwhelmed and having unnecessary pressure to make a decision without knowing the facts. That being said, this proves there was a definite need to organize all of the resources and information and that’s what the breast advocate app does.
The breast advocate app is a wonderful tool for patients, navigators and treating physicians. Treatment options are personalized and reviewed through a quick and easy questionnaire. Patients are also able to connect with others at various stages of treatment and survivorship, creating a virtual support group at your fingertips.
The resources available are informative, concise and fact based. I’ve referred several patients to the app and have used the app myself to obtain more information about a unique patient diagnosis.
I highly recommend all breast cancer patients, navigators and treating physicians download and use this app!
Hereditary Cancer & Genetics
If you or a loved one are affected by hereditary breast cancers and/or ovarian cancers, aka HBOC syndromes, the Breast Cancer Advocate-community is just that & so much more. It delivers high quality information by leading breast cancer experts at your fingertips, whether you’re searching for genetic counselors or you’re a previvor or survivor looking for guidance with surveillance, risk reducing or therapeutic mastectomies. Recent research studies have revealed 8:10 men and women at risk do not even know they carry a faulty genetic mutation. This is simply unacceptable. Family history alone has failed too many. In fact men make up 50% of all carriers. Gender equality needs to be recognized for those affected by male breast cancer. I strongly recommend the Breast Advocate app for people with genetic predispositions, this includes BRCA, PALB2, RAD51C, CHEK2 & ATM genes. All of these genes carry a risk for breast cancer, some of which are known only for women thus far. Finally, to know this game changing app is available to anyone is priceless where excellence is a specialty across the board. Knowledge is my superpower,so make it yours too!
New Breast Surgery and Reconstruction App Worth a Look
Women diagnosed with breast cancer or who are at high risk and want to avoid, as well as those with poor reconstruction results, will find lots of great, reliable information here that will help them make more fully informed choices. Too many women continue to get bad information. Learn more from an expert team about all options, from staying flat, improving lumpectomy results, breast reconstruction and fixing what goes wrong. I have watched this team operate and know they care that will know all their options.
