3. African-American Breast Cancer Alliance

Like Sisters Network, Inc., the African American Breast Cancer Alliance (AABCA) organization is solely dedicated to the breast cancer crisis among Black women. Founded in 1990, AABCA provides emotional support for breast cancer patients and survivors. The goal, essentially, is to empower, educate and inspire women to take control of their health.

The organization offers monthly cancer survivor support meetings as a way for women to share their experiences and develop friendships with fellow survivors. The meetings include lunch and special presentations on selected topics ranging from cancer treatments to stress management. There’s also a weekend retreat, where survivors can go to have fun, laugh, relax and get pampered without worrying about cancer.

Last but not least, AABCA participates in several community events, including the Breast Cancer Awareness Association Conference and the Komen Race for the Cure. They also give presentations regarding cancer education to women of all ages and other healthcare organizations upon request.
