Sista Strut is a 3K walk with a goal to heighten awareness about the issues of breast cancer in women of color, as well as provide information on community resources. Studies show that African American women are more likely to get breast cancer at a younger age and have a death rate from breast cancer greater than that of Caucasian women of the same age. Sista Strut recognizes the strength of survivors, their family and friends, heightens awareness, promotes early detection and the search for a cure. African American women in the US have a41% higher death ratefrom breast cancer than white women. African American women are more likely than white women to be diagnosed with breast cancerbefore age 40and are more likely to be diagnosed with larger tumors. Awareness of these issues will help survival rates with earlier diagnoses.
