The Silver Lining Sisterhood is entering its seventh year. In the spring of 2015, a small group of “sisters” began gathering to support each other in the aftermath of breast cancer treatment. A few of us had met during chemo, others were referred to by friends. It evolved very organically. We were brought together by the common experience of being in the trenches and trying to decipher how to move forward after the “battle”– post-surgery, post-chemo, post-radiation, post-the life that we used to know. Our group has grown to over 350 members on our closed FB group, Silver Lining Support Group.
We became a 501c3 non-profit organization in 2017, in order to help support and promote our mission. We are a sisterhood that appreciates the value of working together toward a common goal and studies have shown that regular exercise can reduce the rate of recurrence by 40-50%. We practice what we preach. As our member numbers increase, so does our need to move forward with our mission. We appreciate any support that aids in our mission of empowering breast cancer survivors….in mind, body and spirit.
