With the growing statistics of breast cancer worldwide, one wonders why scientists have not yet thought of making support systems and accessories to help an early detection and prevention of the same. It took a young boy of 18 to invent a bra that has the potential of saving millions of lives. After almost losing his mother to breast cancer, this Mexican teen created a breast cancer detection bra that earned him the top prize at the Global student entrepreneur awards of 2017.

Julian Rosi Cantu was only 13 when his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer twice. After battling the disease for several years ending in a double mastectomy and losing both her breasts to cancer, Julian was never the same. He decided to do something about it.

Julian’s inspiration was his mother’s battle with breast cancer. He felt the world definitely needed an easier way for women to detect the disease which would enable treatment as early as possible. Even though women are encouraged by organizations and cancer support to examine their breasts regularly, it isn’t an easy task. Julian then went on to invent the auto exploration bra which can save millions of women who fall prey to breast cancer every year.

The auto sensor bra is fitted with 200 sensors that can easily detect the early signs of breast cancer.
