Step Sisters

Step Sisters Improving the quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer by funding needed support services in Northern Virginia and the surrounding community.

www.stepsisters.org The Step Sisters are a team of women and men in Loudoun County’s Brambleton community and beyond that joined together seven years ago to take on the challenge of fighting breast cancer. We are made up of breast cancer survivors as well as mothers, sisters, daughters, brothers, sons and fathers who have all been touched by this terrible disease. The Step Sisters have raised more than $500,000 for the breast cancer cause in nearly 8 years. The Step Sisters are a 501c3 organization. Visit us at www.stepsisters.org to donate to our cause or to learn more about our fundraising events.

National Cancer Survivors Day is an annual celebration of life on the first Sunday in June. It is a CELEBRATION for those who have survived, an INSPIRATION for those recently diagnosed, a gathering of SUPPORT for families, and an OUTREACH to the community.

This day provides an opportunity for all people living with a history of cancer – including America’s more than 16.9 million cancer survivors – to connect with each other, celebrate milestones, and recognize those who have supported them along the way. It is also a day to draw attention to the ongoing challenges of cancer survivorship in order to promote more resources, research, and survivor-friendly legislation to improve cancer survivors’ quality of life. #NationalCancerSurvivorsDay

Thank you for your support of the Step Sisters’ Run The Greenway fundraising campaign. Through the generosity of sponsors and donors, the Step Sisters will be able to maintain all of our 2021 programs in spite of a sharp downturn in fundraising opportunities due to the pandemic.

Overall, our organization made $36,161 from this event, including $8,500 in bonus funds from the Dulles Greenway for being the #1 fundraising charity out of 27 total participating nonprofits of all sizes.

This means:

· We will continue to provide emergency housing and utilities help for patients facing financial difficulties during treatment through our Crisis Fund.

· We will distribute 500 Chemo Care Bags in May, the first of two distributions for 2021.

· Our 9 hospital partners will be able to continue offering our quality-of-life services to patients, including: house cleaning, fresh produce deliveries, prepared meals, childcare, and transportation to and from treatment.

· Most of all, the patients we help will not have to delay or even stop their treatment when faced with difficult situations during their cancer battle.

Once again, we are so grateful for your support of our organization.

I want to thank Step Sisters for their support and care during my Breast Cancer treatment and surgery. I am very thankful for all you do in our community. Special thanks to Ashley D Campolattaro for her efforts during my treatment. I am doing great and feeling blessed.
Proud Supporter of Step Sisters!
In the middle of this global crisis, if someone is willing to find peace in yoga while at home, our research study might be interesting to you. For this study, we are looking for breast cancer survivors anywhere in the US willing to do a brief study with a mobile yoga application in their own homes. Participants of our study will get one-month free subscription to our selected yoga app. Please check the website for details and share it as much as possible. Thank you very much for considering it!
We are a small yoga studio in Hillsboro, and we support you! You are welcome to spread the word about our benefit yoga class October 25.
