Flores also admitted that she was unaware of how to check her own breasts for signs of cancer before being a part of Lounge’s campaign.
Flores’ followers quickly flooded the comments section of the post to offer support and share their own experiences with breast cancer.
“Yeeesss let’s all educate each other. Before my sister was diagnosed with breast cancer I was clueless. She was in her 30s. So it’s just not an older woman problem… 1 in 8 women will get this horrible disease. My sister beat it through early detection,” one person said.
“You are beautiful and your body is also beautiful. Thank you for going out on a limb to bring awareness,” another wrote.
As fans know Flores was catapulted to reality stardom after appearing on the sixth season of the popular TLC series with then-husband, Jonathan Rivera.
