TamBo Foundation will be working with African civic groups and faith based organizations that cater to our target population. This is critical in unveiling the ethno-religious stigmas associated with being a cancer patient of African descent
Early detection is a critical part of preventing deaths from a cancer diagnosis. Africans are diagnosed at a much later state and have a disproportionately lower survival rate. African women are less likely to perform breast self-exams, get mammograms, and are less likely to seek medical care when they suspect something is wrong.
Our culturally appropriate tools and resources will be utilized to raise awareness about prevention, detection and diagnosis.
