Why Breast Cancer Is More Lethal To Black Women

93.1 WZAK

Roland Martin talks with Dr. Janna Andrews and singer Kelly Price about breast cancer’s impact on Black women. White women are more likely to get a diagnosis, but the disease is more likely to end in death for Black women — 41 percent more likely, according to the CDC, said Andrews.

Long story short, happy go lucky Robbie was depressed. So, when my mother called one mid-October evening for our normal daily convo, I listened to her chipper and joyful voice with a frown on my face. “Yes mom, Sherri Shepherd is wonderful on ‘The View,’ yep….”

Then all of a sudden there was a stillness I had never heard before in my mother’s voice, and these exact words followed, “I need to tell you something.”

My frown deepened and my brain rattled with the thought that all only-children living…
