Momager Kris Jenner is championing the cause to spread awareness on breast cancer as she recently took to Instagram to announce her mammography test. The 62-year-old shared two pictures of the mammogram machine and wrote a heartfelt caption in each post, asking her fans to take up the test for the sake of their loved ones.

In the first post, she shared that she spent her Tuesday morning at Cedars Sinai Medical Center getting her mammogram.

"... just reminding everyone to go get their Mammogram!! So important and can save lives," she wrote referring to the machine as "little baby."

Emotionally she went on to express; "My Mom MJ is a breast cancer survivor and so are dozens of my friends. Do this in honor of your loved ones I know all of us have someone in our lives who have dealt with cancer. Love you guys!!!" she concluded with hearts and prayer emojis. 

Her fans took to the comment section to share their own experiences with cancer and about losing their loved ones. One user even mentioned losing her sister just 10 months ago to breast cancer.

Following this post, she promptly posted another snap of the machine and thanked her fans for the comments in the previous post. "Ok guys, thank you for all of your comments about my mammogram..." she wrote and went on to elaborate on her Tuesday morning medical round. "So after i had the mammogram this morning I also got a breast Ultrasound with this machine, just to double triple check..this took about 15 minutes each side and gets under the arm, breast and nearer the chest in the middle ... didn’t hurt at all just some pressure...and very thorough...some of you mentioned even more extensive testing so i thought i would share," she explained, ending the post with two hashtags; "#informationispower" "#bilateralbreastultrasound"
