Resources for People of Color

People of color face specific challenges in all areas of life. Unfortunately, breast cancer and reconstruction are no different. While we are actively working to close racial gaps in healthcare, progress is slow, and it can be extremely important for people of color to find comfort within specific support groups and resource providers.
