Sisters By Choice

 

SBC provides over 800 free mammograms and breast exams to uninsured, unemployed and: homeless women each year as well as providing free educational seminars, workshops, and health fairs to promote breast cancer awareness. This year, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and thousands will not receive lifesaving screenings and treatment because they either lack access or resources to receive quality breast care.

Patient Lodging Programs

 Getting the best care sometimes means cancer patients must travel away from home. This can place an extra emotional and financial burden on patients and caregivers during an already challenging time. The American Cancer Society is trying to make this difficult situation easier for both cancer patients and their families through Hope Lodge and our Hotel Partners Program.
