Facts

  • African American women are more likely than other racial/ethnic groups to be diagnosed with breast cancer at later stages, and they have the lowest survival at each state of diagnosis. 
  • They are also more likely to be diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer, an aggressive subtype that is linked to poorer survival. 
  •  African Americans have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any ethnic group in the U.S. for most cancers.
