Unfortunately , there are 1,700,000 cases of women diagnosed with breast cancer every year. More tragically, this results in 8,200,000 deaths yearly.
There is no official medicine for treating cancer although there are many studies and research. Recently, a young man invented a miracle bra that detects the early signs of breast cancer. It is expected to provide more accurate results than those of a breast self-exam.
The Inspiration For The Bra
Julian Rois Cantu is the inventor of this miracle bra and his mother is his inspiration. When Julian was 13 years old, his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer for the second time. His mother battled with the disease for years.
In the end, she underwent a double mastectomy. According to Julian, it was a late discovery of the disease because his mom nearly died and lost her breasts.
Even though women regularly examine their breasts, it is still difficult to notice the subtle changes that happen in their bodies. Because of his mother`s case, Julian decided that there is need of a better way to determine the early signs and changes in the body of a person with breast cancer.

The Innovative Bra
He invented an “auto-exploration bra.” The bra itself contains 200 tactile sensors inside that can spot signs of breast cancer. The sensors inside the bra are able to track the blood flow, the temperature, the color and even the texture. It is recommended to wear the bra one hour weekly.
During that time, the sensors collect very important information. Also, the sensors in the bra can map the surface of the breast. All the data that the bra gathers is transferred via Bluetooth to an app or a computer. Women can check the information and see whether there are changes in their breasts.
This actually initiated Julian to start and establish his own company. The name of the company is Higia Technologies. He started this company when he was only 17 years old.
This company’s main goal is to improve the quality of women’s lives and at the same time to prevent breast cancer with their breast cancer detection bra EVA.
Julian`s company i.e. Higia Technologies. was awarded with the first prize at the Global Student Entrepreneurship Awards . The difficult time that Julian and his family went through served as an inspiration for the brilliant teen. We hope his invention and brilliant mind would result in saving millions of lives.
