In 2010, the Universe brought to my life a group of beautiful and courageous women who were on their own healing journey or had already been through it. We came together organically and today, we meet once a month and as often as possible, we help other women going through breast cancer.
We call ourselves the “The Link of Hope Sistas™”
We have all gone through health challenges, but we believe that a true purpose exists for every single one of our experiences.
We’re learning that healing journeys can be beautiful, even in the midst of physical difficulties. They can bring unexpected gifts and blessings if we’re open to them. One of our greatest blessings: delicious new friendships and a community of support.
Our mission: To empower, educate and inspire others who are going through their own healing journeys. A prerequisite: We must have fun in the process.
The Sistas are here for YOU. No matter what you’re going through…we’re here to help in any way we can. From time to time, the Sistas will share their stories and what they’ve done to stay positive…even during trying times.
Click on their picture to read their short story and then email any one of us. We can’t give medical advice, but we can offer you tips and information on what has worked for us during our own healing journey and just maybe it will help you with yours.
Carolyn Newman was diagnosed with Stage Three Breast Cancer in May of 2006. Having completed, 6 months of Chemo Therapy, Radical Bilateral Mastectomy with reconstruction, radiation and a hysterectomy, Carolyn is Cancer Free.
Murphy’s law happened, all at once: I was laid off, ended the relationship, started a new job & voila…I was diagnosed with breast cancer…all of this within 8 months.
In July, 2000, Cindy’s life changed drastically when she was diagnosed with breast cancer. Her story is a moving account of how one woman has taken a traumatic life experience and from it found new meaning in her life.
The moment that I found out I had breast cancer I was scared to death and thought I would die especially after losing my younger sister to cancer.
I am grateful that I always had my family’s support during my recovery. As breast cancer survivors we all have to deal with psychological and physical scars, however, I was very fortunate that I found a support group. That made a huge difference in my healing.
In approaching my battle with breast cancer, I chose to be victorious rather than be a victim, and I celebrate each and every day of my life! That’s why I created the Breast Cancer Partner, an organization that focuses on breast cancer recovery through health and wellness.

I had a double mastectomy and one year of chemo. Sure, the physical part was difficult from time to time. But I didn’t focus on that. At all. I focused on the beauty that surrounded me: family, friendship, healers, nature, my pets. Anything and everything that brought me joy.

My sister Nancy has been diagnosed positive with the BRAC 1 Breast & Ovarian Cancer gene. Wow! The doctors say that she has to have her ovaries and breasts removed in order to prevent Breast and Ovarian CANCER! This sucks…
