Though breast cancer research continues to make strides to address early detection, testing, treatment, and prevention, this disease remains the most common cancer among women in the U.S. and the leading cause of cancer death in women around the world. In part, due to biases in the medical field, such as access to care and treatment, breast cancer mortality is nearly 40 percent higher in black women than in white women. Unfortunately, it’s likely we all know or are close to someone impacted by this illness. Having resources and forums is key to helping womxn fight, cope, and survive. Read on for a roundup of resources, tips, and forums that might help you or someone you love. Community

This is a member-run breast cancer forum created for and by people who have been impacted. The goal is to share their unique journey to help and inspire others.
