This year in the U.S., breast cancer is the most common cancer in women, over 200,000 women will be newly diagnosed and over 40,000 will die.
In the U.S., Black women die nearly 42% more from breast cancer and are diagnosed younger.
Each day, Black and Latina women are more likely to be diagnosed with more aggressive breast cancer and at a later stage than white women.
In our Nation's Capital, women are diagnosed and die more from breast cancer - women get breast cancer 15% more and die of breast cancer 30% more than the national average.
