October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and we’ve teamed up with the Denise Roberts Breast Cancer Foundation to spread the word about breast health.

Despite medical advancements, black women who are diagnosed with breast cancer die at higher rates than their white counterparts. Why? Many of us aren’t getting the preventative care we need to catch the disease early. To help more women get access to mammograms, the Denise Roberts Breast Cancer Foundation is asking for your help.

This month, the organization is asking for $65 donations to help more minority men and women get mammograms.

Because early detection is crucial to winning the battle against breast cancer, a donated mammogram could mean the difference between life and death in someone’s life.
