According to the American Cancer Society, “breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among black women…. Breast cancer incidence rates are higher among blacks than whites for women under age 45, and the median age of diagnosis is 58 for black women, compared to 62 for white women.”

Via WDAS/iHeartRadio Media: 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. Read more and find photos by clicking here.
