Bridge the Gap

African American women are more likely to die of breast cancer than Caucasian women, even though fewer African American women are getting breast cancer each year and screening use has improved. And, this difference has actually gotten worse over the past 20 years {armyofwomen.org}.

We need to know what is going on so that we can begin closing the GAP between the health outcomes of African American women and Caucasian women.

If you are an African American woman who was diagnosed with breast cancer (or if you know of someone who was), please participate or invite them to participate in this study (Click link).

"The best way to close this GAP is to fill it with knowledge!"
