This lab allows older women to stay healthy.
An all-female BIPOC team from a Californian not-for-profit organisation has developed an app to help Black and Indigenous women navigate breast cancer, with comprehensive digital support available post diagnosis.
Support includes introductory information about the illness and treatment methods, as well as costs and associated side effects.
In addition, there is targeted financial aid, made possible by donations; and access to doctors who belong to the same demographic group as patients or have an understanding of their needs.
Also available: psychological support through meditation, exchanges with other breast cancer patients and tips for building lasting networks.
