Advocate

Among her other breast cancer advocate endeavors, Angela serves as the secretary for the Metropolitan Chicago Breast Cancer Task Force. She believes financial and cultural barriers prevent Black women from getting regular mammograms and health screenings that would aid in early detection of the disease. “We need to get beyond the old wives’ tales and put the science behind the myth.” – Angela Walker
