August is Black Philanthropy Month! Join us today to give back to Black-led nonprofits. We’ll be highlighting the important work we’re doing in the cervical cancer space, members of our community, and ways we’re trying to eliminate disparities for Black women and cervical cancer.
Black women are impacted, disenfranchised, and disproportionately impacted by healthcare affordability and access, by lack of comprehensive sexual health education, and by historic mistreatment of people of color, particularly Black people, by the healthcare community.
We are addressing the disparities in sharing our stories, increasing screening rates, encouraging vaccinations, and participation in clinical trials. Research tells us that when cervical cancer is detected and treated early enough, women have a 93 percent five-year survival rate.
We like these numbers and must rid ourselves of the disparate stats harshly impacting Black women. Every woman deserves to be screened, to receive equitable treatment, and to know they have a fighting chance at being a Cervivor! Let’s fight collectively to protect, prevent and prevail!
Start by donating to Cervivor today! Without generous donors and sponsors like you, none of this crucial work would be possible.
