Often times when one is diagnosed with breast cancer, the emotions can be quite overwhelming. Those of us in the group have found courage and support from others as they've experienced the different stages of treatment. If you are newly diagnosed, just beginning treatment, or if you have completed your treatment, someone will be happy to listen and encourage.

The Survivors’ Sisterhood Breast Cancer Support Group is making some changes in its mode of assistance. In an effort to accommodate more people through our group, we will be offering One on One Personal Service. Getting to a meeting to talk things over with a group is not always convenient, so through our website and the following phone numbers and email addresses:

Marcia Arend 651-6798
Ginger Horn 651-9463

Or email: ssisterhood@charter.net,

you will be put in contact with someone who has experienced breast cancer first hand. From our list of members, someone will talk with you by phone, by email, or arrange a personal visit, if that is your wish.

We remain committed to the emotional support and encouragement to those who are experiencing the effects of breast cancer, either personally or by relationships. In addition, we actively support community education concerning this disease.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

We hope that you will avail yourself of our services. The Sturgis Hospital will be offering Pink Saturdays free mammograms for those qualified. In addition, our group is partnering with the Sturgis Hospital to offer a free medium specialty drink at the Great Lakes Chocolate and Coffee Company to any cancer survivors any Saturday during October.

Our Mission Statement: We are committed to the emotional support and encouragement of those who are experiencing the effects of breast cancer, either personally or by relationships. As a group of breast cancer survivors, we actively support community education concerning this disease.
Group History: Following successful treatment for breast cancer, Karen Borgert and Kathy Miller felt a void. Their own experiences with breast cancer left them with the sense that a support group was needed in the Sturgis area. They shared their concerns, individually, with Trish Grubb, Sturgis Hospital technician. She put them in contact with one another and ultimately, the breast cancer support group was formed.
Today over 25 women have found support through this group. Many are long term survivors with as many as 25 years cancer-free; others are as newly diagnosed as the day before the meeting. All come to give and to get encouragement and strength from one another. In developing this website, they hope to reach out to still more people with similar needs.
