Across California, despite having lower breast cancer incidence rates, African American women’s’ mortality rates are 41 percent higher than their counterparts. The same research indicates that African American women are often diagnosed at later stages, sometimes with more aggressive forms of cancer and at younger ages. Susan G. Komen and its Circle of Promise initiative is working to change this reality. Using best practices informed by community leaders like Dr. Suzanne Afflalo Komen is conducting intensive peer-to-peer education where these women live, work, shop, pray or play. This effort allows us to bring education and medical services to a community where none exist. Without it, thousands of women would not be screened; and thousands more would not benefit from the permanent improvements to community health networks.
