Description: On April 8, 1987, the U.S. House of Representatives Joint Resolution 119 designated the third week in April as “National Minority Cancer Awareness Week.” As explained in the Congressional Record, the resolution drew attention to “an unfortunate, but extremely important fact about cancer. While cancer affects men and women of every age, race, ethnic background, and economic class, the disease has a disproportionately severe impact on minorities and the economically disadvantaged.”
