African American Breast Cancer Awareness

___________________________________

The Alliance House Community Coalition has been award proclamations from the State of Tennessee, Knox County government and the City of Knoxville for its work around addressing the disparities in breast cancer and black women.

 

Our racism and health initiative under AHCC is to Address Racism as a Public Health Crisis. The recognition by state and local governments has identified the second week of September as African American Breast Cancer Awareness Week in Tennessee.

Despite best efforts to improve disparities in breast cancer outcomes and while studies show a decrease in the mortality rates of women with breast cancer; Black women still have double the 5 and 10 year mortality rates compared with white women and still have an occurrence of a 60% mortality rate in the state of Tennessee.

 

AHCC has a statewide campaign to pre-register 1000 state residents. We need 1000 pre-registrations by June 2023. Commit to help change the attitude towards breast cancer awareness and testing for Black women in this state.

 

What AHCC is doing:

 

  • AHCC has gained approval to commission a state breast cancer license plate.

  • Free breast exams, DNA testing and mammogram screenings

  • Assisting breast cancer warriors and survivors with direct services (Utilities, Rent, Hygiene Products, and Food)

FUNDING is "KEY!!!" EARLY DETECTION is "KEY!!!" EDUCATION is KEY!!! DIET is "KEY!!!" COMMUNICATION is "KEY!!!"

 

IT'S NOT ENOUGH FOR YOU TO PRE-REGISTER BUT YOU HAVE TO SHARE THIS CAMPAIGN WITH EVERYONE.
