Low-income women are more likely to be diagnosed with late-stage breast cancer and are three times more likely to die from the disease. This year alone, more than 6,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in North Carolina and more than 1,200 will die of the disease.

State Health Director, Dr. Leah Devlin provided additional remarks regarding BCCCP and public health. The evening concluded when family members of the late Sen.
