HEALTH MINISTRY: The Health Ministry prays you have been better informed by the breast cancer info provided this month. Here is the last fact of the month…remember breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among African-American women. While death rates for most cancers have declined overall, racial and ethnic disparities in breast cancer morbidity and mortality continue to persist. Early detection and better risk assessment is the primary method for reducing the disparities in breast cancer.
