The Being Mary Jane actress Lisa Vidal is opening up about her breast cancer diagnosis on The Real today as a testament not only to how crucial early detection is, but also how key it is to do more than just get an annual mammogram.
“The reason I really wanted to talk about this is not only to share the experience, but to also say early diagnosis is so crucial. And mammograms don’t always find it.
Nothing against mammograms, but the ultra sound is what kinda saved my life because they found it so early. Mammograms arelike a snowstorm and you’re trying to find the snowflake. And you don’t see it until it’s much worse, and so that why I really kind of want to advocate for women to get ultra sounds and early detection and so that was my diagnosis and the good thing was that it was treatable.”
Last week Vidal also shared a message of support to all those affected by the disease during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
