The Henda Salmeron Foundation mission is to provide healthcare services, financial assistance, and breast cancer screening to women who might not otherwise be able to afford proper care.
Henda’s Law changed the standard of care for every woman in the State of Texas on June 17, 2011. The existence of HB-2102, by State law, requires every mammography provider to specifically notify women that they have DENSE breast tissue and the increased risks associated therewith.
The law is named after Henda Salmeron, the “Maverick Mom, Survivor, Author, Investor, and Award Winning Real Estate Broker” who created, lobbied, and passed Texas HB-2102. Since its ratification in the State of Texas in 2011 it has directly influenced the subsequent passing and/or introduction sister bills all across the country.
The law is responsible for alerting tens millions of women about their Dense Breasts and their increased potential for undetected breast tumors. Furthermore, it has educated them all as to their their rights as a patient and facilitated advanced screening that has has saved tens of thousands lives.
