Minority Women With Breast Cancer Uniting, Inc. (MWBCU) provides a confidential and supportive arena where the many challenges of living with cancer can be shared with others with similar experiences.
MWBCU gives women and families concrete information and guidance in dealing with the disease. The group instills confidence and encourages women to learn as much as possible about the surgical procedure or treatment their physician has scheduled. MWBCU also informs women about nutrition and exercise as part of the healing process. Most of all, MWBCU empowers women with a solid spiritual foundation to overcome one of life’s most difficult challenges.
