Avon Foundation-Funded Breast Cancer study released this month finds that black women are dying at higher rates than white women. Between 2010 and 2014, the breast cancer mortality rate for Black women was 30.7 deaths per 100,000 women and 21.4 deaths per 100,000 white women. Advocate Good Samaritan Hospital in Downers Grove has a subject matter expert available to comment on the study. She is a breast cancer survivor and patient care manager at the hospital who helps guide cancer patients through treatment.
