Journalist diagnosed with breast cancer while getting mammogram on Facebook Live

By

Ali Meyer turned 40 last year. To commemorate the occasion, she got her first mammogram, a routine breast exam all women should start getting when they turn 40. As a journalist, Ali thought it would be helpful to livestream her first mammogram. It would raise awareness about the procedure and remind other women to schedule their own appointments. 

She never expected that her first mammogram would be irregular and that she would be diagnosed with breast cancer that day, while streaming on Facebook Live. But that's what happened.
