“We are excited to kick off the 2nd Annual Pink Power Tour with our newest affiliate chapter in Charleston, SC to bring awareness to Triple Negative Breast Cancer (TNBC),” stated Karen E. Jackson, Founder/CEO, Sisters Network Inc. The kickoff of this tour in April highlights the Cancer Awareness Calendar recognizing April as Minority Cancer Awareness Month and Minority Health Month which coincides with our mission to extend our reach to educate black women on breast health, empower them so they can live longer, and encourage them to make their health a top priority!”
For nearly three decades, Sisters Network® Inc. has been committed to increasing local and national attention to the devastating impact that breast cancer has in the Black community.
Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) is an aggressive subtype of invasive breast cancer that disproportionately affects Black women and contributes to racial disparities in breast cancer mortality. Prior research has suggested that neighborhood effects may contribute to this disparity beyond individual risk factors.
"My team and I are extremely excited to have the Pink Power Tour come to Charleston,” stated Nina Mitchell, President, Sisters Network Charleston Affiliate chapter. “This is just the beginning of what we have in store for the African American Breast Cancer Community in the Charleston area. The Pink Power Tour coming to Charleston helps our mission to support, educate, encourage, be available for one another as we navigate through our breast cancer journeys and to drive our message home that We have Breast Cancer; BUT Breast Cancer doesn't have US!”
