Breast and Ovarian Cancer Study
The Mayo Clinic seeks individuals to participate in a study on the views and perceptions of African American women with family or personal experience of breast and ovarian cancer on treatment experiences and genetic testing for cancer risk. Study participation involves speaking with a researcher on the phone or a video conference (e.g. Zoom) for about one hour. Participants will receive a gift basket to thank them for their time.

Why an organization focused on Black Breast Cancer Issues?
Multiple studies indicate that the mortality rate of African Americans are higher than other ethnic groups. CBBC focuses on survivors, treatment and support for African Americans fighting breast cancer, but is not an exclusive organization. All are welcome to participate and join.
CBBC is an Arizona nonprofit whose mission is to provide high quality, reliable information and support to black breast cancer survivors in their breast cancer journey.
Nationally, one in eight women, as well as a minority of men, will be affected by breast cancer. The CBBC goal is to eliminate this reality. Learn the facts and get involved.
Through sharing our stories we will help break down the stigma of taking about and taking proactive action and learning how to win the battle.
You are not alone!
