Survivorship disparities are differences in outcomes among specific population groups, such as race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, and education.
African American women are nearly twice as likely as white women to be diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer and are much more likely than white women to die from breast cancer.
Rates of liver cancer are higher among American Indians/Alaska Natives and Asian and Pacific Islanders than other racial/ethnic groups.
Women in rural areas are twice as likely to die from cervical cancer as women in more urban areas.

Cancer patients and survivors should not get COVID-19. A three-time cancer survivor should definitely not get COVID. But I did. And it was not good. Here is my story and the lessons I learned that might be of value to others.
Three women, three cancer survivorship journeys, three missions resulting in nonprofits started to help and support others fighting cancer.
Thanks to funding awarded by the Centers for Disease Control for five-years beginning July 2020, Georgia CORE and Augusta University are partners in the Georgia Colorectal Cancer Control Program, which is increasing CRC screenings in southeast and southwest Georgia.
