According to the World Health Organization, breast cancer is the leading cause of death in the Americas.

Our Game Changer on “Americas Now” nearly lost his mother to breast cancer when he was 13 years old. From Mexico, meet Julian Rios.

His mother’s diagnosis terrified him. It was an experience that set in motion an irrepressible desire for Julian to find a solution to the flawed methods for early detection of the disease.
