Breast Cancer is the second most common cancer in women in the United States today. It affects women of all races and ethnicities, however it does not affect all races and ethnicities equally. The incidence rate, or rate of diagnosis of breast cancer is ten percent higher in white women than any other racial or ethnic group. When you look at the mortality rates of breast cancer however, an even more startling statistics emerges which is that black women die from breast cancer at a forty percent higher rate than any other racial and ethnic groups (Center for Disease and Prevention Control 2012). This means that two out of five black women diagnosed with breast cancer will die. The question then becomes, why are black women across the country dying at a significantly disproportionate rate from breast cancer than any other racial or ethnic group?
Cocoa Queens wants to do what no other hair extension and hair care company is doing now, and that is using hair care and extensions as a platform of exposure for breast health information. We are achieving this goal by using hair extensions and hair care products as an avenue of exposure of this pertinent information. With every purchase we are educating customers and taking an active role in spreading awareness by incorporating breast health education into our packaging. In addition to providing education, with each purchase made through our company a portion of our proceeds is donated to initiatives of the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
We are proud to be partnered with the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
