Her New Image


Her New Image is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to helping women and her children living in shelters and women under going cancer treatment and beyond. We serve newly diagnosed cancer patients as well as survivors from Texas by providing products specifically related to breast cancer and breast exam educational seminars.


PURPOSE:


Her New Image is specifically designed to help women and children living in shelters due to domestic violence and under insured women battling breast cancer receive image support products and educational resources. We were created from the heart of our Founder and President, Terry Tribble, a Certified Mastectomy Fitter with a Master's in Business Administration / Project Management.


We support women of all ages, in all stages of breast cancer, along with their caregivers, offering friendship, knowledge and encouragement. We are committed to helping women battling breast cancer reclaim "Her New Image" with image support products and breast exam educational seminars.

Breast cancer is the most common cancer among American women, except for skin cancers. About 1 in 8 (12%) women in the US will develop invasive breast cancer during their lifetime. The American Cancer Society's estimates for breast cancer in the United States for 2018 are:


  • About 232,670 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women.
  • About 62,570 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be diagnosed (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
  • About 40,000 women will die from breast cancer.

Hispanic women get more aggressive breast cancers than non-Hispanic white women.

​Even though African-American women have a lower incidence of breast cancer, they are more likely to die of this disease than women in any other racial or ethnic group.
​Compared to all other women in the United States, Asian-American women are the least likely to have ever had a mammogram.

Caucasian women have the highest incident rate for breast cancer.
