1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, but 90% who are diagnosed early survive over 5 years. However, breast cancer victims often realize they have breast cancer when it is too late, costing them thousands. About 40% of diagnosed breast cancers are self-detected in its early stages with a routine self-exam, and Norma will help add to that number.

What it does

Norma is an interactive chat bot aimed at helping to detect breast cancer at an early stage through guidance and education. Norma guides users through a self breast examination, allows users to keep track of their progression with a journal, and provides contact information to a doctor.
