Honorary Breast Cancer Survivor, Lilian Vanvieldt-Gray Featured
Honorary Breast Cancer Survivor, Lilian Vanvieldt-Gray shares her story with Black & readers in hopes of inspiring everyone to prioritize their health and be aware of their breast cancer risk.
“I want to use this platform to educate people about the importance of learning their family history and talking about it with their physicians,” said Vanvieldt-Gray. “Also, as an African American woman, I was shocked to learn breast cancer is the most common cancer among African American women and we also have a lower survival rate than women from other racial and ethnic groups in the United States.”
