African american elderly man in hospitalNEW YORK– African-Americans are more likely than any other race to spend money on treatment to prolong their life, according to a study published Tuesday in the journal Cancer.

80% of African Americans were willing to spend all their resources to extend life, but for white people the number is just 54%. Other minority groups landed between those two groups, with 69% of Hispanics and 72% of Asians saying they were willing to spend everything on extending life.

The study authors cite research suggesting that African Americans have a culture “of overcoming and struggling,” and are therefore more willing “to exhaust personal financial resources to extend life.”
