#INCLUSIONPLEDGE FOR BLACK WOMEN

The #InclusionPledge provides a transparent and tangible framework across stakeholders to identify and track equity actions, holding organizations accountable to making specific, measurable outcomes that will result in dismantling systemic barriers and co-creating solutions that will result in health equity for Black women and end disparities in our lifetime.

We believe that literacy, financial barriers, access, social, systemic and hereditary backgrounds should not be determinants of life and health equity. Particularly as patients are impacted by COVID and post COVID pandemic repercussions, the pandemic has had and will continue to impact health disparities for black women within the cancer research and cancer care ecosystem. In order to continue to accelerate and make an impact as it relates to disparities and Black women, the #InclusionPledge is imperative.

On Day 2 of #PatientRecognitionWeek, we give a shout out to @tigerlilycares founder and CEO @Maimah, a triple-negative #breastcancer survivor. She was diagnosed with stage 2 breast cancer at only 32 years old with no prior family history. 1/2

HOPE Wall: https://bit.ly/3HQzzJ9

With no targeted treatment for triple-negative, @Maimah overcame her fears by stepping into action to create @tigerlilycares. She wanted young women like herself with the disease to know whatever the diagnosis, it doesn’t own you – you decide how to live your life despite it. 2/2

Families often are overwhelmed when a loved one is diagnosed with cancer. In some families and in some cultures, cancer is often kept private, and families do not discuss health matters, family health history and how they feel about what’s happening to the one they love. This has an impact on family health and how families cope through illness. Maimah comes from a Black, African family, and is first-generation American. In her family, many personal matters were not discussed. When Maimah went through her cancer journey she had the full support of family, but talking about CANCER and how people or how she felt, was like the elephant in the room. Through Tigerlily Foundation Maimah is working to change the trajectory cancer has within families and encouraging others to start these important and healing conversations. Listen as Maimah has an honest and heartwarming conversation with her brother for the first time about cancer since she was diagnosed with Triple Negative Breast Cancer 17 years ago. This is Maimah's legacy. What’s yours? #MyLifeisMyLegacyMerck Careers Amgen Seattle Genetics, Inc Amgen Sanofi Eli Lilly and Company Daiichi Sankyo Brasil Bayer ... See MoreSee Less
