Chiki Bombom is the influencer best known for her motivational messages. Ingrid Macher is a breast cancer survivor and nutrition entrepreneur with more than 20 million followers across her networks.

“For the third year in a row, I am spearheading the importance of learning how to check your breasts,” said Dr. Tania Medina. “I am pleased that Chiki Bombom and Ingrid Macher have joined me in 2022. As a plastic surgeon, I know how important it is to self-examine periodically because it is how we check for any abnormalities.”

To support women who do not have resources and/or medical insurance in the Dominican Republic, Dr. Medina, together with other professionals, hosts a day of free mammograms.

“Before joining the campaign, I met women who suffer from breast cancer. I thought that, because I was young, I would not get it, until Dr. Medina confirmed to me that you can get breast cancer starting at the age of eighteen. As young people, we must take self-examination very seriously,” said Chiki Bombom.

Ingrid Macher pointed out: “I detected breast cancer early, and it was a process that I was able to face with lots of faith and the support of my family. I am a strong proponent of inviting everyone to perform breast self-examinations on a regular basis.

Breast cancer is considered a leading cause of illness and death in the United States.
