More than 3 million women have been diagnosed with breast cancer in the United States. Recent research has shown that Breast Cancer is among the leading causes of death resulting from cancer in the Caribbean. As well-known advocates for the Haitian and Haitian-American Community, the Haitian American Chamber of Commerce identifies the urgency for more education regarding Breast Cancer within the Caribbean community.
On October 19, 2019, the Pink Noire Breast Cancer awareness event will be held for its 4th year. “Pink” for cancer awareness and “Noire” to emphasize the staggering number of newly diagnosed women of color.
The Chamber’s Vice President, Djenane StFleur, believes that the fight against breast cancer can ABSOLUTELY be won. As a 4-time cancer survivor, Djenane knows all too well the life-changing experience of being diagnosed with cancer. “Early detection can save so many lives, getting the information out there is a must”. As the organizer of Pink Noire, every detail must be perfect. “Pink Noire is a celebration of all survivors and a remembrance of the fallen heroes who are no longer with us. I am living proof that this battle can be won,” says Djenane.
Pink Noire will be a night to remember with one of the most popular bands of Haiti, KREYOL LA, enchanting guests with their magical sound.
