WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- We're marking 19 years of Buddy Check 9 raising awareness about the importance of early detection and awareness, in fighting & beating breast cancer.
Fran Visco believes the conversation about breast cancer needs to change. She's the president of the National Breast Cancer Coalition and a 25-year breast cancer survivor.
She said October, breast cancer awareness month, may be hazardous to a woman's health. We asked her why. We also asked her about NBCC's deadline that is now 7 years, 83 days away to find a cure by 2020.
See her interview above.
