Fierce advocacy moves us from the adversity of breast cancer to action at the individual, family, community and systemic level. We’re aiming for impactful and transformational change that leads to better breast cancer outcomes for Black women.
Our Breast Health Advocates are trained sisters helping sisters, meeting the breast health needs of patients, survivors, thrivers and caregivers. Our advocates can help you prepare for medical appointments, go to appointments with you, be a listening ear, get you connected to other resources and more.
