National Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Deaths from Breast Cancer

Black women are dying from breast cancer at a higher rate than other women. White women have the second highest rate of deaths from breast cancer, followed by women who are Hispanic, American Indian/Alaska Native, and Asian/Pacific Islander. There are no statistics available for multiracial women.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Schedule your mammogram today or remind those you love.
