6:43 pm
have lumps and cysts in there, but what happens is when there is something that is different, something that wasn't there last month, it is an a-ha. there is a woman in our organization who with 39 years old, never had a mammogram done, and she is one of the women that had actually was working with us to launch this product, to use this and she detected something that didn't feel quite right. she went to her doctor. they did find that she had breast cancer. >> early detection is so important because they say that 90% of the time when it is found early that the chances of survival are excellent. >> absolutely. it is when you don't find it into the later stages that it can be devastating. when you can, you know, detect something different in the very beginning stages, it is wonderful, and for men as well, the rise in breast cancer in men has been increasing as dramatically as in women.
6:44 pm
>> this certainly is a beautiful product and for women i think probably for men. there will probably be a different design if they're going to promote them that way. it is increasingly important, and we want to encourage everyone to do monthly self exams. now, oh lift a newton john is a breast cancer survivor of a number of years. how did she decide this was something she wanted to make sure that others knew about? >> she was very -- she is very, very passionate about breast cancer. her own cancer was not detected in her mammogram, and she felt it, and she went back to her doctor and they did a needle biopsy and detected the cancer, so she wants to find that every woman in america or in the world is aware of their body and is using this device and using methods to become comfortable with their body and to try to get early detection and self awareness.
