Pin-A-Sister®/Examínate Comadre® Social Media Toolkit
October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month and now, more than ever, it is important to come together to recognize all the breast cancer survivors for their perseverance and strength, raise awareness of the importance of early detection, even in the midst of a COVID-19 pandemic, and work toward the reduction of health disparities that persist among African-American and Hispanic women who develop breast cancer.
