Hi!  I'm a student at Ohio University.  I am working on an article about diseases that African-Americans are at higher risk for.  I'm looking for African-American women who would be willing to do a 15 minute interview to tell their story/experience.  I'll also need (African-American women) particpants for similar interviews on lupus, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and sickle cell anemiaSimply respond and we can work on a time.  My deadline is 11/23, so I'll have to get all interviews in before then.  Thanks!

I have been involved with breast cancer support boards since Feb. 1999 and to my knowledge we have not had but possibly one African American woman participate. Knowing that breast cancer is quite prevalent in the race, I have often wondered why. We don't ask questions about race, religion, etc. but usually through getting to know one another, we learn some of these facts. So it is doubtful you will will hear from anyone on this board. Good luc k. Mary K.

I hope this links works.  It is about an organization  called Sisters of Support.  In fact there is  a shop in Old town Loveland on Loveland Maderia road.  The owner is a breast cancer survivor.  She had a huge pink ribbon in her window during Oct. and has a lot of pink ribbon type items.  She had a table with pamplets that featured several support groups here in Cincinnati.  I hope this helps.  I can't remember the name of the group that was listed that would help you in your research.  I honestly do not know if Sisters of Support is the one that was listed in her shop.  Also there is a group called Pink Ribbon Girls.  You might email them and I know they could help you with if not people to talk with other names of groups.
