PRETTY WINGS’ MISSION
Our Mission is to raise public awareness on the impact of breast cancer in the African American community and to educate on the benefits of early detection, effective treatment options, and healthy lifestyle choices.
WELCOME to PRETTY WINGS. We have created this site specifically for African Americans and other minorities that are being impacted by breast cancer. It is our desire to form alliances with individuals, schools, and organizations that are advocates of education about the disease and treatments and want to empower those faced with the mental, physical and spiritual challenges that occur with breast cancer.
Share your story, spread the word, or join the PRETTY WINGS advocates’ FLIGHT FOR LIFE.
KNOW YOUR FACTS:
A woman’s best overall preventative health strategy is to reduce her known risk factors as much as possible by avoiding weight gain and obesity (for post menopausal breast cancer), engaging in regular physical activity, and minimizing alcohol intake.
