Now about that Laura Lehmann connection everyone is asking about.
“Unfortunately, I am not related to Laura po as much as I would love to…”
Is there any personal attachment to breast cancer awareness that you chose it to be your advocacy?
“Yes, tito. I have come up with the said advocacy since I have undergone breast incision twice. With that being said, uncontrollable growth of lumps in my breast made me realize that I have to share to the public that it is through knowledge and self-examination that we can battle and control risks of breast-related diseases. I had early detection po kasi, na it is not dangerous, and we always have a chouce if we want to have it removed or not. But in my case, I had it removed, and I am aware that up until 35 years old, I can still acquire lumps but it is not as dangerous as people think.”
So there. An introduction to Graciella Lehmann for all of you. More about her soon!
