MWBCU was born out of a need to give counsel, comfort and hope to minority women that have been diagnosed with breast cancer and/or undergone treatment. Founders of the organization were astounded by the high mortality rate of breast cancer among minority women and the woeful lack of published knowledge about minority women who have suffered from the disease. They determined to inform and inspire women to take action in order to reduce their risk of developing breast cancer.
Today, the enduring work of MWBCU is a tribute to the women who have succumbed to breast cancer and a legacy to the family and friends they left behind. Remembering these women inspires MWBCU to press on until a cure is found. Until that day, MWBCU is resolved to tell others that THERE IS LIFE AFTER BREAST CANCER!
