Why We Strut:
African American women in the US have a 41% higher death rate from breast cancer than other demographics.African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40 and are more likely to be diagnosed with larger tumors than other demographics. Awareness of these issues will help survival rates with earlier diagnoses.
Sista Strut is the largest walk of its kind in the Pee Dee to support women of color.
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!
Thank you for being part of this year's Sista Strut!
