The global educational awareness effort seeks to amplify the stories of breast cancer survivors and provide resources to maintain breast health.
So it was fitting that when a reader called the Public Investigator team last week asking for help finding free or low-cost breast cancer resources in the Milwaukee area, we responded.
According to estimates from the American Cancer Society, 5,460 women in Wisconsin will get breast cancer and approximately 720 women will die from the disease in 2023. In Wisconsin and nationwide, Black women tend to have lower incidence rates but higher death rates when it comes to breast cancer.
