Acknowledging disparities on juneteenth

While we celebrate our accomplishments this Juneteenth, let's also look to see what else still needs accomplishing. There is a giant breast cancer disparity between black and white women!

Black women are 41% more likely to die from breast cancer than white women, despite having similar incidence rates.

We are working to help close this gap with our free programs specifically targeting our underserved Arizona population! We offer free educational magazines and presentations, free mammograms and testing, free wigs to women in treatment, and support through our Super Survivor Kits and support group meetings: Super Survivors Unite!
