"So important and can save lives," Jenner wrote. "My Mom MJ [Mary Jo Shannon] 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 [sic] dealt with cancer." 

Jenner also shared another photo of testing equipment with the caption: "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."
