Knotty Girl, with her rope and knot body, is a visual representation of what breast cancer can feel like...round and hard like a KNOT! Her mission is to EDUCATE on the importance of monthly breast self checks for the early detection of breast cancer. Knowing how your body looks and feels will help you to alert your health care provider to any changes you may notice between mammograms and wellness exams with your doctor.
Forty percent of diagnosed breast cancers are detected by women who feel a lump, so establishing a regular breast self-exam is very important.*
"As a breast cancer survivor of 2002, I found my breast cancer lump in my right breast and it felt like a round HARD KNOT. By doing a monthly self-exam it saved my life." - Diana Albritton, Knotty Girl Founder.
Thus came to fruition KNOTTY GIRL! With her rope and knot body, her mission is to educate and spread the importance of monthly breast self-exams and breast cancer awareness with everyone. She offers a VISUAL and an idea of what a lump might feel like. Round and hard like a knot!
Knotty Girl hopes you find something you would like to purchase from the Knotty Girl Store. Knotty Girl will continue to spread her wings because of your purchase and continue sharing her mission, promoting awareness and transforming the lives of those affected by cancer.
