(BPRW) Shining a Light on Breast Cancer Awareness: A Conversation with Karen E. Jackson

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL – October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month and though all women can be affected by breast cancer, Black women continue to have a higher death rate. The incomparable Karen E. Jackson, Founder and CEO of Sister’s Network Inc., joined the Thrivin’ in Color podcast for an information packed discussion on the significance of early breast cancer screenings along with the indicators and signs women should be aware of.

In this episode, Karen engages in an intriguing conversation with podcast host Camry Brown about the breast cancer disparities Black women encounter while sharing her own experiences as a four-time breast cancer survivor. She also provides insight on how Sisters Network Inc. advocates and aids women in their breast cancer journey. “Karen is such a gem who is passionate about the work she is doing,” said Camry. “Women, especially Black women, will be enlightened after hearing this episode.”

Karen E. Jackson founded Sisters Network Inc. almost 30 years ago. Today, SNI is the largest and only national Black breast cancer survivorship organization in the United States and a leading voice in the fight against breast cancer in the Black community. Sisters Network Inc. National headquarters is in Houston, Texas and has over 25 survivor-run affiliate chapters nationwide.
