WHY WE STRUT
Did you know that 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! Get involved with the Sista Strut and make a difference!
The goal of Sista Strut is to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure.
See video from a past Sista Strut in Memphis to get a vibe of the event:
