Mission Moment 

This month as we celebrate Black History Month it’s important to remember how breast cancer affects our African-American sisters.

African-American women are being diagnosed younger, their mortality rate is higher, and breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death as compared to other races.

There are several possible reasons for these disparities including barriers to health care access, biological and genetic differences, and late stage diagnosis.

Susan G. Komen® Dallas County is here to change these statistics. Help us by donating today, and learn more about breast cancer in African-American women here.

Research Corner 

Susan G. Komen® recently received a $4.8 million boost in metastatic breast cancer research through a crowdfunding match challenge. Metastatic breast cancer is responsible for a majority of the more than 40,000 annual breast cancer deaths.

“The $4.8 million raised is going to make a significant impact in our mission to reduce breast cancer deaths through research and programs, while also providing real-time support for those facing metastatic breast cancer today,” said Susan G. Komen President and CEO, Paula Schneider. “We are so grateful to the many individuals who contributed to this vital research.” Read more here.
