Sisters of Promise

African American women in Atlanta have higher breast cancer mortality rates than their Caucasian counterparts and are more likely to be medically underserved.

In a continued effort to change this alarming truth, Susan G. Komen Greater Atlanta is proud to announce Sisters of Promise.

The Sisters are an assembly of powerful African American women in greater Atlanta who have embraced Komen Atlanta’s promise to work to end breast cancer forever. They understand the power of their collective resources to make a resounding difference for thousands of underserved women in Atlanta less fortunate than themselves. The Sisters are African American women raising funds to provide life-saving breast screenings to their African American sisters who need them most!

With focused outreach in Atlanta communities with the lowest breast cancer screening rates, highest percentage of late stage diagnosis, and highest breast cancer mortality rates, the Sisters support Komen Atlanta’s mission to continue to educate and help African American women to detect and survive breast cancer.

Susan G. Komen …

For the past 31 years, Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.

Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don’t find a cure. Komen will not stop until the cures are found and delivered.

We Will Find the Cure!

I applaud your efforts in raising awareness.
I have been working with some ladies in my community in regards to fundraising for Susan G. Komen walks. I have helped them with in-home Tastefully Simple parties, online parties and catalog parties where I have donated 20% of the profits to the Susan G. Komen cause.
Please let me know if you are interested. My website is below.
Thank you and God Bless you and yours.
