July 23, 2014 -- A grass-roots initiative has launched the Dangerous Boobs Tour to educate women about dense breast tissue and the potential need for additional screening, such as with MRI or ultrasound.

The Dangerous Boobs Tour was founded by Heather Reimer, Wendy Damonte, and Chiqeeta Jameson. All three women said they have been affected by dense breast tissue; Jameson and Reimer are cancer survivors whose cancers were missed by mammography but later detected through ultrasound or automated whole-breast ultrasound from SonoCiné, according to the initiative.

The tour's mantra -- Each One, Tell One -- is meant to inspire women to learn about their own breast density and, in turn, educate friends and loved ones. More information is available at EachOneTellOne.com.
