Mission Statement:
Sisters Network® Inc. is committed to increasing local and national attention to the devastating impact that breast cancer has in the African American community.


Sisters Network® Inc. was founded in 1994 by Karen Eubanks Jackson in Houston, Texas.  Sisters Network® Inc. is the leading voice and only national African American survivorship organization in the United States

Sisters Network Orlando Chapter Inc. was chartered by then President, Sherlean Lee in 2005. It is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization. We solicit your donation to help us promote “Breast Health Matters” in the Central Florida communities. The Orlando Chapter of Sisters Network® Inc. is devoted to bringing breast cancer awareness to the African-American community of Central Florida. Sisters Network Orlando Chapter Inc. is committed to fight breast cancer through education and by advocating annual mammograms and monthly self-breast examination (SBE). We diligently distribute breast health pamphlets, share our stories, encourage and empower women in Orlando and surrounding areas to take control of their health. Our outreach efforts to promote early detection of breast cancer compels us to seek women in hair salons, churches, health fairs, sororities, schools, and civic groups.  We work closely with our medical and community partners.  

We invite survivors and non survivors to join our chapter to be a part of our campaign to “Stop the Silence®” in the Central Florida community and help save lives from breast cancer and all cancers.

EARLY DETECTION IS THE KEY TO A MORE SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT
