The episode title explains it all--Black women do not talk about breast cancer enough. In this episode, I interview lawyer and advocate Erika Stallings, esq.

In this episode, Erika shares her story of when and how she found out she carried the BRCA2 gene mutation and ultimately deciding to undergo a double mastectomy.

You’ll learn what BRCA2 is, the impact it has among Black women, and helpful things to think about if you are interested in discussing this topic with your physician.
