Sisters Breast Cancer Survivors Network

Sisters Breast Cancer Survivors Network was founded in 1994 by nine African American breast cancer survivors who saw the need to educate, enlighten, and empower our community about breast health issues. Our focus was on the need for early detection, diagnosis, and treatment of breast cancer.

About the company

Based in Los Angeles Sisters Breast Cancer Survivors Network is dedicated to providing a supportive and nurturing environment in which all women and their families are empowered with the knowledge and available resources that will enable them to make informed decisions concerning their breast cancer treatment and breast health options before and after diagnosis
Our vision is to encourage both men and women to take a proactive role in the awareness of important steps they can take to ensure the early detection of breast cancer in order to initiate an immediate treatment protocol.
We currently serve women in the over 40 age group with the majority being over 60 living in Los Angeles county.  During our outreach activities we distribute information to all age groups. We have presented at school health fairs at all grade levels and and college campuses as well. We continue to inform, uplift and encourage survivors, their friends and caregivers through  our monthly support group meetings and focus groups.

Breast Health


Early detection is the key to surviving breast cancer. Up to 97% of breast cancers can be treated successfully if they are found early and have not spread beyond the breast.
