Breast Cancer & Black Women – Ericka Hart‘s Story
On this week’s episode, we discuss breast cancer and black women. We cover Ericka Hart’s (pronouns: she/they) story, a queer black femme who was diagnosed with bilateral breast cancer at 28. And we highlight Touch: The Black Breast Cancer Alliance, an advocacy organization founded by Ricki Fairley, a triple negative breast cancer survivor.
