"Short-term assistance to help...women going through treatment."
"Linda Creed was my niece."
"We make a difference in our community."
The Linda Creed Breast Cancer Organization joins the community in advocating for social, economic and racial justice. We have seen these racial disparities in breast cancer, where black women have a higher rate of dying from breast cancer than any other races.
