WHY WE STRUT: Did you know that African American women have a 41% higher death rate from breast cancer than white women? And, are more likely to be diagnosed before age 40?

That needs to change! Get involved with the Sista Strut and make a difference!

The goal of Sista Strut is to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure.

WHO WE BENEFIT: American Cancer Society

Thanks to your support of American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, we are there for everyone in every community touched by breast cancer, including those who are currently dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis; those who may face a diagnosis in the future; and those who may avoid a diagnosis altogether thanks to education and risk reduction
