The Sisters Network, Inc. is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing informational and emotional support to African-American women who have been affected by breast cancer and to increasing local and national attention that breast cancer has in the African-American community. Established in 1994, Sisters Network addresses the needs of African-American women facing breast cancer through its local chapters and partnerships with existing service providers. The primary services of the Network are to provide emotional and psychological support; a resource for medical research; community cancer education and awareness programs; a speaker's bureau; in-home sister-to-sister support; and a self-titled periodic newsletter. Sisters Network advocates early detection as the best defense against breast cancer through monthly breast self-exams; annual breast exams by a doctor; and mammography screening starting at age 35.
