OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The older a woman gets, the greater her risk of getting breast cancer.

Black women and white women get breast cancer at about the same rate, but the CDC says Black women are more likely to die from it.

The Brake for Breakfast event helps to raise awareness of breast cancer.

3 News Now reporter Danielle Davis was at the Shadow Lake Towne Center where volunteers helped serve breakfasts and reminded women to get a mammogram on Friday.
