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.
WHO WE BENEFIT
AACR - The mission of the American Association for Cancer Research is to prevent and cure cancer through research, education, communication, and collaboration. Through its programs and services, the AACR fosters research in cancer and related biomedical science; accelerates the dissemination of new research findings among scientists and others dedicated to the conquest of cancer; promotes science education and training; and advances the understanding of cancer etiology, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment throughout the world.
Where do the proceeds go?
A portion of the proceeds from Sista Strut are donated to the American Association for Cancer Research, the oldest and largest scientific organization in the world focused on every aspect of high-quality, innovative cancer research.
