Dr. Veena Rao of Morehouse School of Medicine speaks about disparities among women with breast cancer. GPB's Ellen Eldridge reports.

The Naples Community Hospital also had a booth on the lawn, with a multitude of information about breast cancer, treatment, and prevention.There are 6 outpatient facilities in the Naples area that perform preventative services such as mammograms and MRIs, the Naples Community Hospital recommends annual mammograms from age 40 or from age 21 if there is a history of breast cancer in your family.

"It could be due in part to the slight increase in incidence since 2004, as well as a sign that optimal breast cancer treatment has become more widespread, particularly among white women".

The fact that breast cancer mortality is decreasing is good news, but much more work needs to be done to close the gap between white women and black women, DeSantis noted in a statement released by the ACS.

Beauty Blender Beauty Blender is donating $20,000 to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation this month, so there has never been a better excuse to stock up on the brand's limited-edition, bubblegum pink blender, which comes in a shimmering canister. This disparity is magnified among black women under 50.
