She urges women to "push past the mammogram"
Cordts hopes that her story will teach others to take an active role in their health and to trust their instincts. “I want people to talk about it. I want people to ask questions. Most importantly, I want people to push their doctors when their gut tells them that something isn’t right in their bodies,” she said. “Push past the mammogram and demand further testing until you know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, what is wrong,” she added.
