TAMPA – The Tampa Alumni and Zeta Chi chapters of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc. supported the Sisters Network of Tampa Bay recent annual breast cancer walk. The money raised from the walk not only is to raise awareness about breast cancer but to help uninsured women get annual checkups.
According to Breastcancer.org, there are more than 3.8 million women with a history of breast cancer in the U.S. This includes women currently being treated and women who have finished treatment. Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer among American women. In 2022, it's estimated that 30 percent of newly diagnosed cancers in women will be breast cancers.
In women under 45, breast cancer is more common in Black women than white women. Overall, Black women are more likely to die of breast cancer. Kappa teams with Sisters Network annually during Breast Cancer Month to hopefully help eradicate this
