Sisters Network Inc. (“SNI”), the only national African-American breast cancer survivorship organization, has launchedTEENS 4 PINK, a new program that aims to educate and empower African-American teens to change the way their family members think and act about breast health.
The program, sponsored by Eisai Inc., is being piloted in Houston, TX and Memphis, TN, two cities where African-American women with breast cancer face some of the highest mortality rates in the country.
Governed by an elected Board of Directors and assisted by an appointed medical advisory committee, membership in SNI includes over 3,000 participants, and also includes more than 40 survivor-run affiliate chapters nationwide. The organization’s purpose is to save lives and provide a broader scope of knowledge that addresses the breast cancer survivorship crisis affecting African-American women around the country.
