Although white women are more likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer,
Black women in Indianapolis are 41% MORE LIKELY TO DIE from breast
cancer. Black women are diagnosed with breast cancer at
LATER STAGES and YOUNGER AGES than White women.
BREAST CANCER IS DIFFERENT AND MORE DEADLY FOR BLACK WOMEN.
We collaborate with researchers, health professionals and systems,
patients, survivors, caregivers, advocates, service providers, faith leaders and government agencies for better
BREAST CANCER OUTCOMES for Black women.
