Who We Are

We are a breast cancer support group primarily for women of color (all women are welcome).  We believe a higher power joins us together and gives us strength.

Our Purpose

We are Sisters of faith looking to support new Sisters who are living with a breast cancer diagnosis.  We want to help you learn to live with breast cancer as we have. We are here for you on your journey.

Our Mission

We are women reaching out to women of color to inspire, embrace, nurture, and heal the spirits of those who have been impacted by breast cancer.Sister to sister 3
