Susan G. Komen-Los Angeles County Joins Rainbow Promotions, LLC’s “Ladies Night Out!”
A Night of Celebration of Women! A Night of Breast Cancer Awareness! A Night of Soulful Sounds from: Musiq Soulchild, Goapele and Dwele
Susan G. Komen- Los Angeles County will be present to provide educational materials regarding breast cancer and breast cancer awareness.
Since 1982, Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer – transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors. The organization is proud of their contributions to some real victories:
*More early detection and effective treatment– Currently, about 70 percent of women 40 and older receive regular mammograms, the single most effective screening tool to find breast cancer early. Since 1990, early detection and effective treatment have resulted in a 34 percent decline in breast cancer mortality in the U.S.
More hope –In 1980, the 5-year relative survival rate for women diagnosed with early stage breast cancer (cancer confined to the breast) was about 74 percent. Today, that number is 99 percent.
*More research – The federal government now devotes more than $850 million each year to breast cancer research, treatment and prevention (compared to $30 million in 1982).
*More survivors – Currently, there are about 3 million breast cancers survivors, the largest group of cancer survivors in the U.S.

Musiq Soulchild’s performance at the “Ladies Night Out” will raise awareness about breast cancer so that ALL women will know the importance of early detection, and why it is important to pay attention to their bodies
“Early detection is the key to winning the fight against breast cancer. Too often, black women are diagnosed in stage three and four when breast cancer is most difficult to treat. Some women are afraid to seek treatment for fear of losing their breasts or their hair. One’s physical appearance is much less important than the will to live. It’s time to remove the stigmas that are attached to this disease.”
“I care because they are at risk. They have always supported me and it’s time that I return the favor and support them. I feel the need to make an impact before breast cancer impacts them and if my music can be the vehicle, then I am happy to serve.” Musiq Soulchild
