“Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of learning how to do breast self-exams. I especially wanted to invite Carlos Ponce and Dr. Pablo García for them to take this message to men, since this kind of cancer can affect them too,” said Dr. Tania Medina.
She also invited Karina Banda and Ingrid Macher, both remarkable women in their own right. Karina, for her charisma, and Ingrid for being a breast cancer survivor.
The influencers capped off their campaign with the unveiling of a three-sided billboard on Broadway in Times Square.
“We send this message to the world from the most iconic street in New York, this year especially with men in mind,” explained Dr. Pablo Medina.

-A painless lump or thickening
-Changes to the skin covering the breast, such as dimpling, puckering, redness or scaling
-Changes to the nipple, such as redness or scaling, or a nipple that begins to turn inward
