If you are a breast cancer survivor or know of someone with breast cancer,
this is the page for you. African American women get diagnosed earlier than our white counterparts and we die earlier.
One of the reasons is late diagnosis.
My message is: If you find something suspicious - go to the doctor immediately!!!
Breast Cancer can be treated successfully if it is found early!!
I have compiled a list of sites geared toward the unique issues African American
face such as
1. Embarassment about the disease.
2. Fear of diagnosis.
3. Ignorance of the disease.
We must learn to take care of ourselves!!!
