My Density Matters
Ambassador, Beverly IL

Did you know that breast density is a significant risk factor for developing breast cancer?

My Density Matters is on a mission to empower women of Beverly, IL, to find out their breast density and take control of their breast cancer screening.

The denser breasts are, the
higher the risk of
breast cancer.

A mammogram will miss
more than 50% of
cancers in dense breasts.

The Beverly Check Your Chart Campaign

You can find out your breast density by reading your mammogram report through your online portal (often called MyChart).


If you have dense breasts, mammography alone is not enough for you. Contact your doctor to discuss additional breast cancer screening.
