It was was a huge success and a great opportunity for us to meet and greet each other. We know will continue to strive for a better understanding, more excisable, support group of women to empower other women to someday reduce or even eliminate Breast Cancer in our communities.

Census Bureau estimates that in 2011 there are approximately 40.9 million African Americans living in the US, comprising 13 percent of the total population. The African American population is not homogenous and includes individuals whose ancestors were brought to the US as slaves, as well as more recent immigrants born in other countries.
