But there were no significant differences in breast cancer death rates between black and white women in seven states, according to the study, while Massachusetts, Connecticut, and DE had similar rates, suggesting equitable breast cancer outcomes are feasible.
McGrath Foundation breast cancer nurse Yarna Sargent said the day would show what help is available locally to aid patients, both male and female, through treatment. "Some states are showing that they can close the gap".
