Worship in Pink
Our Bold Goal: To reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S. by 50% by 2026.
Eliminating Health Disparities and Creating Health Equity for All
Breast cancer disparities for African-American women are startling. According to the most recent data available, breast cancer mortality is about 40 percent higher for African-American women in the U.S. than Caucasian women. And, African-American women are often diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer when treatment options are limited, costly and the prognosis is poor. Susan G. Komen believes this is unacceptable and is working to change these outcomes.
Worship in Pink
Worship in Pink is a grassroots effort in which churches in Knox County and surrounding area engage their congregation in breast cancer awareness activities each October. Komen East Tennessee can help design your event, provide customizable templates for announcements, and deliver educational materials.
