Join Us in Honoring Eva Mae Barnes
While cancer takes a heavy toll on all Americans, research shows that black women are at greater risk than white women of developing or dying from a handful of cancers, including those of the breast, colon/rectum, lungs, and cervix. Since the early 1970s, studies have shown that black Americans have a higher death rate from cancer than any other racial or ethnic group. Eva Mae Barnes is one of those people who have passed the torch to next generation to continue the fight. Now we are celebrating her courageous fight against cancer and honoring her life.
To honor Eva Mae Barnes and to celebrate how far she has come, we have decided to support Susan G. Komen in their fight against breast cancer.
Please help us honor Eva Mae Barnes by raising funds to support Susan G. Komen so they can provide education, screening and treatment programs for women and men in our community, and support cutting-edge research so that one day we can live in a world without breast cancer.
As the world’s largest and most impactful breast cancer organization, Susan G. Komen supports more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside the U.S. government, while providing real-time help to those facing the disease.
