Breast cancer mortality rates have decreased by 40% since 1989 due to new technological advancements in treatment and early detection. While the mortality rate has decreased significantly, the five-year breast cancer survival rate is lower in black women compared to white women, and black women are more likely to be diagnosed with more aggressive forms of breast cancer, according to Susan G. Komen.
Komen has launched a “Stand for H.E.R. – a Health Equity Revolution” initiative to address breast cancer disparities in the black community. During Black History Month, Komen will honor the achievements of black researchers, health workers, advocates, and breast cancer patients and survivors in a commitment to removing barriers.
