Sisters at Heart Breast Cancer Support Group of SOMD is a component fund of the Community Foundation of Southern Maryland, a 501(c)(3) public charity. Our mission is to promote breast cancer awareness in the tri-county communities. Established with sisterly love in November 2007, the group supports each other as well as those women and men diagnosed with breast cancer. It is our hope that together we can make a difference in the lives of those affected with this disease, be an advocate for early detection, provide education, and support research.
In Memory of our founder, Roberta Kieliger, we make heart “comfort” pillows for our local hospitals to be distributed to the women and men who have breast cancer related surgeries.
We trust that the comfort of snuggling and knowing that it was specially made for them will provide comfort, inspiration and hope. The fact is…they are not alone, Sisters at Heart are here for them and together this bond strengthens our survivorship and belief in HOPE.
“Each of us has faced the reality of our diagnosis and its impact on our lives. We share our hopes, our fears, and our tears. We are here to draw strength and comfort from each other as we travel this road together.” Roberta Kieliger
