While the pandemic has canceled many important moments in our lives, our mission to support breast cancer survivors during treatment and educate our community isn’t canceled and we will continue to raise funds and educate our community.
The Portal for our 5K Walk 4Life will be open until Oct. 31st. This Walk was to pause and Remember those we lost - view video by Pink Divas on our Website - s2scnj.org, to celebrate life as survivors, view photos sent to Sister2Sisternj Facebook Page, and to raise funds for women that are in the midst of the battle: a women was diagnosed with breast cancer while working as a consultant trying to make ends meet. "For 4 months the hospital and doctors put her on hold, stating she needed test done but was delaying tests due to her financial difficulties, unable to pay $500 up front, $1,400 every two weeks and $5,136 for a port placement before she could start chemo treatment. Sister2Sister was able to pay a few of her out of pocket expenses but navigated her to a hospital with Charity Care that would get her the immediate help she needed and a reasonable payment plan after treatment." Your Zip Code should not determine your treatment options. This is 2020 and African American women have a 41% HIGHER DEATH RATE then White Women despite lower incidence rate.
