The Director of the Harlem Breast Cancer Coalition, Blanche Bouie, describes how breast cancer is a serious problem among the African-American community. Also noted is the startling statistic that only 37% of African-American breast cancer patients are diagnosed in stage 1 or 2 of the disease, as compared to 68% in the nation at large.
