You Are Not Alone
A diagnosis of breast cancer is a fearful experience. We want you to know you are not alone. Black women and men diagnosed with breast cancer are coming together to support and encourage each other, learning how to be survivors as they deal with this disease.
About the AABCA
Black women who had experienced breast cancer founded the African American Breast Cancer Alliance, Inc. (AABCA) of Minnesota, in October 1990. The AABCA is dedicated to providing hope, awareness, education, emotional and social support to breast cancer survivors, their family members and the community. Information and action is particularly important because Black women tend to have more aggressive breast cancers at younger ages and benefit from earlier detection and aggressive treatments.
The AABCA has been recognized locally and nationally for its collaborative efforts and innovative educational materials. Being There!, our motto and title of our breast cancer information brochure for Black women, seeks to empower women to take charge of their health and take care of their lives by becoming knowledgeable about breast cancer.
The AABCA is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Minnesota.
