Actress and breast cancer survivor, Adamari López, joins us to chat about early detection of breast cancer

Learn about Orgullosa’s partnership with the Liga Contra el Cáncer.


In honor of breast cancer awareness month, we are reuniting forces with Liga Contra el Cáncer – a nonprofit organization that provides free medical care to cancer patients in need – and actress and breast cancer survivor, Adamari López to encourage all Latinas to invite the women in their life to win the battle against breast cancer before it begins.

From Adamari López: 
“Through my annual partnership with Orgullosa and Liga Contra el Cáncer, we are making true strides to create a positive and supportive dialogue for Latinas surrounding the importance of early breast cancer detection. I know this firsthand and feel truly inspired to use the Orgullosa platform to share my story and to motivate others to help us spread the word.

As many of you know, I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2005 and as I celebrate a decade as a survivor, I’m committed to doing everything I can to further treatment, support and research efforts that assist women suffering from breast cancer. This is why Liga Contra el Cáncer has a very special place in my heart because of the free services they provide to underserved cancer patients.

Together with Orgullosa, I am committed to helping Latinas win the battle before it begins. As part of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Orgullosa is tapping into the power of social media to educate women about early detection of breast cancer to be #OrgullosaStrong.

Breast self-awareness is a concern in the Latino community due to cultural stigma. To help guide Latinas to self-exam for any changes in the size or appearance of their breasts, Orgullosa has created a series of social postcards available on Facebook.com/Orgullosa.

The unique postcards tastefully incorporate bra designs featuring the three recommended patterns to follow for breast self-examination: up and down, circular and wedge-like. For every postcard shared, Orgullosa will donate $1 to Liga Contra el Cáncer, up to $30,000.

Remember, Together WE are Stronger. Let’s hold hands in this fight – whether your neighbor, mom, sister, daughter, coworker – we can save thousands of lives with early detection!”
