Shades of Hope Sisterhood Is a support group that helps to increase the support network of the women in the sisterhood. It is to be an essential resource for people with breast cancer of all ethnicity and ages.

Cancer challenges you in a way that only those who experience it may know. Shades of Hope Sisterhood will connect individuals as they journey together. They will grow and learn outside of this illness and create a sense of bonding in an unseen community of hope.


Shades of Hope meets every month via Zoom, sharing treatment, responses, shared challenges, resources, and psychological support for the journey.

Shades of Hope allows you to partner with other women to keep a connection weekly. The focus is to provide HOPE on our journey.

We Are… Shades of Hope

The idea of Sisterhood: A Sisterhood can create strong connections that last forever while also bringing a sense of belonging to women who might feel isolated with a disease and alone.

Motto: “Sisters in the battle, I am shield and blade to you. As I breathe, your enemies will know no sanctuary. While I live, your cause is mine.” (Quote)
