Something I've Been Thinking A Lot About...

I recently read that almost 1 in 8 women will be affected by breast cancer in her lifetime, and that number has been on my mind ever since I heard it, can you believe it?

Mammograms are a very necessary reality, but—yikes!—if you’ve ever had one you know that they can be so painful! Maybe fewer women would be affected if we didn’t avoid these invasive and uncomfortable exams, right? That’s why I was excited to partner with Hologic to tell you about a new option!


I have learned more about the SmartCurve™️ breast stabilization system, which is used exclusively with Hologic’s Genius™️ 3D Mammography™️ exam. Instead of a big, flat, uncomfortable paddle, the SmartCurve system is shaped like your body, so it’s much more comfortable than your average mammogram.[i] So smart!


Health truly is wealth so don’t delay— use this link to find the nearest facility that offers the Genius exam for a more comfortable, smarter mammogram. This post is a paid partnership with Hologic. #ad

The Genius™ 3D Mammography™ exam (also known as the Genius™ exam) is only available on a Hologic® 3D Mammography™ system. It consists of a 2D and 3D™ image set, where the 2D image can be either an acquired 2D image or a 2D image generated from the 3D™ image set. There are more than 6,000 Hologic 3D Mammography™ systems in use in the U.S. alone, so women have convenient access to the Genius exam. To learn more about the Genius exam, visit
