The official Dangerous Boobs Tour™ vehicle hit the road last week at MINI of Reno, where the “Dangerous Boobs Tour”™ unveiled its latest tool, a Mini Countryman. Sandy Raffealli, owner of Bill Pearce Motors of Reno, graciously donated the Mini Countryman, which is wrapped in pink with white polka dots, thanks to Grafics Unlimited artist Jill Pauly, also of Reno.
The purpose of the Dangerous Boobs Tour™ is to educate women about the importance of knowing that mammography is not enough for women with dense-breast tissue. They need an additional screening such as ultrasound or MRI to detect what mammography misses in that tissue type.
The pink-and-white polka dot Mini is designed to make women ask: What is dense-breast tissue? Do I have it? Tour leaders also hope it will motivate women to talk with their doctors about the breast examinations that are right for their breast tissue type.
“We applaud this act of generosity toward the very important dense-breast awareness cause,” says Karsten Damgaard-Iversen, CEO of SonoCine, Inc.
Matt and Lydia Meyer, of Mini of Reno and Bill Pearce Motors of Reno, presented the Mini to Heather Reimer, founder of “Each One, Tell One™” and to Wendy Damonte and Chiqeeta Jameson. The three women launched the Dangerous Boobs Tour™.
The tour’s mantra “each one, tell one™” is meant to inspire women to learn about their own breast density and, in turn, educate friends and loved ones. Reimer, Damonte and Jameson have all been impacted by dense-breast tissue. Jameson and Reimer are dense-breasted cancer survivors whose cancers were missed by mammography but were later detected through ultrasound and SonoCiné AWBUS (Automated Whole Breast Ultrasound). Damonte joined the Tour in honor of her mother who, “didn’t die because she had breast cancer, she died because she had dense breasts,” Damonte says.
