Black women under 35 get breast cancer at two times the rate of white women and die at three times the rate.
Black women under 30 die from breast cancer at 4x the rate of white women.
While 92% of Black women agree breast health is important and 25% of Black women have recently discussed it, only 17% have taken steps to understand their risk.
