October is breast cancer awareness month. Did you know that while Black women are not diagnosed at the highest rate, they have the highest mortality rate than any other group? When Black women are diagnosed, it is at younger ages and more advanced stages of the disease. Many of us know someone who has battled breast cancer and sadly even more of us know what it’s like losing someone to this terrible disease. Not only affecting our loved ones but our community at staggering rates, Dope Culture finds it critical to host an event that not only raises awareness about the importance of getting screened for breast cancer but directly contributes financially to Black women who are currently in the fight of their lives. A portion of the proceeds will also benefit breast cancer awareness and research.
