Her five-year crusade with the Breast Reconstruction Advocacy Project (BRA Project) led to the passage of an unprecedented federal law that was signed by President Bill Clinton in 1998, requiring insurance companies to pay for this specific surgical procedure.

Horner is the award-winning author of, Waking The Warrior Goddess: Dr. Christine Horner's Program to Protect Against and Fight Breast Cancer (3rd Edition) and her new award-winning book, Radiant Health, Ageless Beauty (Elgea Publishing, 2016).
4 Fatal Health Mistakes Women Over 40 Make

Remember when turning 40 was considered being “over the hill,” marked by a symbolic tombstone engraved RIP on top of a birthday cake? 

Today, turning 40 is more synonymous with “running up a hill,” as women in this age bracket tend to be at the peak of busyness.

Surveys and census data show more women over the age of 40 are starting families, getting married (for the first or second time) and are at the pinnacle of their careers. 

Over the hill? Hardly. But, running at such a fast pace up the hill can cause you to put your health on the back-burner and easily lead to making fatal mistakes that can potentially damage your health and shorten your lifespan.
