The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says Black women are 40 percent more likely to die of breast cancer than White women are.

Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths among American women, but the CDC’s Ileana Arias says Black women have “unacceptably high” death rates. She says they have the “highest death rates from breast cancer among all racial and ethnic groups.”
