"I found a lump during my routine self-breast exam last year and scheduled an appointment immediately," said Haddox, who works in the medical surgical unit at Detroit Receiving Hospital. "My mom was diagnosed with breast cancer at 43 so I know how important it is to detect cancer in its early stage. I wanted to do everything I could to beat this disease."

Haddox came to the Karmanos Cancer Institute. Her mammography showed a suspicious mass. Just before her biopsy, Haddox was asked if she wanted to take part in a clinical study related to new breast imaging technology created at Karmanos. She agreed, knowing that it could make a difference for others in the future.

"My first experience with this imaging was just before my biopsy. The exam was quick and there was no discomfort whatsoever," expressed Haddox.

The biopsy confirmed that Haddox had Stage II invasive ductal breast cancer.

"I went through several weeks of chemotherapy to shrink the tumor before I could have surgery. As part of the clinical trial, I would go each week to have another ultrasound of my breast with this new technology. Since there was no radiation or compression, it was safe and much easier to monitor how effective the treatment was on shrinking my tumor based on the enhanced images. The tumor mass did shrink, and I was able to have surgery in June 2009."

Haddox, who is still undergoing treatment, added, "From a patient's perspective, there was no discomfort or added anxiety from the process. It only takes a couple of minutes compared to MRIs, which take 45 minutes, or a mammography, which can be painful. And it's safe. I would love for all women to have access to this new technology."

A woman is diagnosed with breast cancer every three minutes in the United States and every 29 seconds globally. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 40,000 women will die of breast cancer in the United State
