Why We Fight!
In the shadow of our Nation's Capitol women get breast cancer 20% more, are diagnosed later and die of breast cancer 40% more than the national average. And while white women are more likely to develop breast cancer, African American women die 41% more from breast cancer. African American women under age 40 also have a higher rate of breast cancer. Each day, African American and Latina women are more likely to be diagnosed with more aggressive tumors and at a later stage than white women.
DC Pink Divas is a patient navigation, training and outreach program designed to combat breast cancer. "Divas" are lay health workers that educate, empower and impact women where they live, work, play and pray to insure that where a woman lives, does not determine if she lives.
Because a zip code should never be a death sentence.
