“The community needs to be included—those who fear basic screenings, those living with cancer and cancer occurance and mortality disparities, those without good access to care, those who struggle with the basic necessities of life while fighting cancer —they all need to be represented in cancer research initiatives. Without addressing issues like the lack of access to the gold standards of care, the absence of providers with cross cultural competence, why so many of our community's underserved fear cancer care, the effects of socioeconomic disparities, without treating social determinants of health like poverty, subprime education and segregation, we can’t and won’t end cancer.”
- Phyllis Holder, RN, MSN founder and president, Sisters 4 Cure, Inc.
We are passionate, purpose driven volunteers who give time, talent and treasure because we believe that we lived to help others live. We vow to educate, support and work cooperatively concerning three priority issue areas. We want to improve community health by increasing the personal responsibility of all individuals at risk for, living with and beyond breast cancer, depression and select other chronic illnesses. We have a vision of multi-generational work toward and agreement about the importance of “doing what we can do” to reduce disparity, loss of vitality and death in our community. With a majority of us living beyond our time and vicious breast cancer, the words of the late, great Dr. Maya Angelou give us the energy to go on.
We are breast cancer survivors who know that thriving is better than merely surviving. We are passionate, purpose driven volunteers who give time, talent and treasure because we believe that we lived to help others live.
