What does a sister do when you need help? Maybe she watches your kids or cooks a meal for you. She doesn’t ask what you need because she already knows. She just pitches in and helps.
The Step Sisters are Northern Virginia women and men that have all been affected in some way by breast cancer. Some of us are survivors, others are caregivers, friends and family. But we are all united in our goal to step in to help, just as a sister would.
The Step Sisters fight breast cancer differently – by raising funds to provide practical support services for area patients as they battle the disease.
Studies show that personal and financial difficulties can cause breast cancer patients to delay or even stop their treatment. By funding services such as transportation, childcare and house cleaning, our goal is to not only increase a patient’s quality of life, but also decrease her obstacles to treatment.
