Every year, nearly 20,000 black women in the U.S. are diagnosed with breast cancer.
If one of those women is your sister, there is something you can do to help. You can join the Sister Study today!
Seeing your sister fight breast cancer can give you a sense of helplessness. But joining the Sister Study is a powerful way to make a difference. The Sister Study wants to find the causes of breast cancer so that future generations, including our daughters, granddaughters and nieces don't have to experience the disease.
Sign up for the Sister Study if you are:
a woman between the ages of 35 and 74 years old
and you have never had breast cancer yourself
and your sister (living or deceased), related to you by blood, had breast cancer
and you live in the U.S. or Puerto Rico.
JOINING THE SISTER STUDY IS EASY, SAFE AND PRIVATE.
NO MEDICINE. NO DOCTOR VISITS. NO LIFESTYLE CHANGES. NO INSURANCE REPORTING.
More than 4,000 black women are participating in the Sister Study, but hundreds more are needed. Read some of the compelling stories from women who have joined.
A number of organizations are working hard to increase awareness and ensure the Sister Study results apply to the black community including the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church, the Tom Joyner Morning Show and many more [READ].
Even if you are not eligible to participate, you can help by forwarding this email and encouraging other women to join.
