Endometrial cancer is the most common gynecologic cancer in the US – yet it receives less public attention and fewer research dollars than many other types of cancer. Endometrial cancer also has one of the widest racial health disparities of any kind of cancer. African-American women with endometrial cancer in the U.S. are more likely to die from the cancer — by a large margin — than any other group. Join us and our partners - Black women health educators, advocates, and leaders in Seattle and across the country - so that all women diagnosed with endometrial cancer have the best chance of a cure.
When endometrial cancer is diagnosed early, it is often cured with surgery, and sometimes additional chemotherapy or radiation. However, African-American women, across every educational and income level, have a much lower chance of being diagnosed at this crucial early stage – resulting in thousands of preventable deaths every year. Support Dr. Kemi Doll and her community partners as they investigate complex solutions to a complex problem: reducing endometrial cancer deaths among Black women.
