During my own battle with breast cancer, I had the support of family and friends and never had to face the disease alone. After completing treatment, I wanted to pay forward the support I received, and getting involved with the Step Sisters was how I have been able to do that. As Board President, I have helped put the mission of the Step Sisters into action and have seen and heard first hand the impact our support has had on local breast cancer patients. Our fundraising dollars go to someone very specific (a breast cancer patient), for something very specific (transportation to/from treatment, house cleaning, food delivery & child care), at a local level. My hope is that no one in our community feels they are facing this disease alone, and I am very proud to be a part of this wonderful Step Sisters organization!

To start the review with honesty - I handle public relations for The Step Sisters. To end it with honesty, I must say that each member of this organization is sincerely dedicated to it. Breast cancer has affected each and every member of The Step Sisters in some way. Instead of focusing inwards, they have as a group, turned their attention to other patients facing the disease. They know what is involved in fighting breast cancer and therefore they know the best ways to provide support.

As a co-founder and Board Vice President of the Step Sisters, it has been my honor and privilege to support local breast cancer patients during their treatment. Our organization provides quality-of-life services to those in need. It's hard for most to ask for help, but our "sisterhood" is always ready. Family members and friends have been touched by this disease and my Involvement in our organization's mission is a meaningful way to pay it forward.
