African American Breast Cancer - awareness, education, research & support
3 Steps to Early Detection
*Mammogram may be needed earlier if there is a family history of breast cancer.
I was recently approached by a woman at an event that said, “so many organizations only focus on raising awareness about breast cancer, but what do they offer to those that have actually been diagnosed with breast cancer?” Wow, what an opportunity to talk about what WE do! You see, Carrie’s TOUCH is so much more…. Yes, we are a registered 501 (c)(3) nonprofit breast cancer organization. Yes, we are committed to doing our part in eradicating breast cancer, and yes, we also support those that have been impacted by the dreaded disease! We even do our part with regard to research! We serve the community through raising awareness, providing education, conducting research while offering support to survivors/thrivers/warriors AND their families. We are a rapidly growing organization that has been recognized for our outreach efforts locally, nationally and abroad. We fill a gap. We meet a need. We’re on the move and we are the difference. We are…Carrie’s TOUCH!

Liz’s proactive decision to have a bilateral mastectomy after testing positive for the BRCA2 Gene Mutation was bold and courageous. We celebrate Liz as our featured model from our highly acclaimed awareness and education calendar, Breast Cancer EXPOSED™.
We also congratulate actress, ANGELINA JOLIE for making the same decision after she tested positive for the BRCA1 Gene Mutation. It’s women like Liz and Ms. Jolie that are taking charge of their lives and minimizing their chances of being diagnosed with breast cancer!
