Test Those Breasts

Jamie Vaughn has and still doing a tremendous job in promoting breast health care and awareness. After listening to her podcasts, I feel so educated and upto date in the field of breast cancer, a topic where not too many people talk openly about the practical issues they face in life.
As I see my own daughter go through this journey, listening to Jamie makes it easy for me to navigate through this dark alley!!
Thank you Jamie, please continue to do what you are doing. You are the best❤️❤️❤️

Jamie understood the assignment!

As a breast cancer survivor of 7 years, I learn something new from every episode. I felt so scared, confused and alone when I was diagnosed. I didn't know about so many things, and I was too overwhelmed to even know what or who to ask. I would have loved to have had a resource like Test Those Breasts!

I love how Jamie says that she is doing the podcast to shorten the learning curve for other women. She is doing that. All the interviews are interesting and full of extremely useful information. She truly has a heart to help. I would recommend anyone facing breast cancer to listen to this podcast. Whether you are a previvor, survivor, a thriver or a caregiver, there is something here for you.

Heartfelt & Empowering

Knowlege is power, and this podcast gave me information I didn’t even know I needed! Whether you’re navigating breast cancer for the first time or revisiting your options due to new complications, you’ll be amazed at what you can learn by tuning in. This isn’t just a project for Jamie — it’s very personal, and her passion for sharing everything she’s learned, and everything she wished she had known is very evident. So grateful for this resource! 💗
