Queen V is proud to announce our partnership with Bright Pink, an organization that is focused on empowering women to know their breast and ovarian cancer risk and manage their health proactively. As a female-powered company, our dedication to feminine wellness directly aligns with Bright Pink’s values and we want to educate and remind you that your future health is in your hands.
1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, which is a little more than 12% of women. It is imperative to know your risks and be aware of the signs that point towards breast cancer. The first step you should take is completing this quick and simple quiz that assesses your breast and ovarian for you. This quiz will give you your risk for ovarian and breast cancer based on the results and will guide you to the next best steps!
At least 10-15% of breast and ovarian cancers are directly related to the genes we inherit. This is why it is so important to know our family’s medical history. If you have the opportunity, sit down with your family and have an open conversation about breast or ovarian cancer in the previous generations. This can better prepare you for personal risks.
When breast cancer is detected early, the 5-year survival rate can be greater than 98%! This percentage is the number of people that live at least 5 years after the cancer is found. “Knowing your normal” can help detect your cancer early. Being familiar with the shape of your breasts and performing monthly self-breast exams is an easy and common way to catch breast cancer at its early stages.
We hope this information was valuable and will lead you to take charge of your future health. Knowledge is power!
