Sistahs Surviving Breast Cancer

“Early Detection Saves Lives”

Our History

Sistahs Surviving Breast Cancer (SSBC) was organized in 2000 by a group of breast cancer survivors at Mt. Zion Progressive Missionary Baptist Church as a faith-based community support group under the leadership of Jacqueline Y. “JB” Brown.

Sistahs Surviving Breast Cancer is a community support group organized to assist African American and other minority women through their fight against breast cancer.


Our mission is to support and educate our community and help reduce the disparities in breast cancer deaths, treatment, and recovery, and to dispel the myths in minority communities through education by:

  • Increasing breast health information
  • Increasing early detection awareness
  • Increasing knowledge of prevention methods available


SSBC provides peer-to-peer support, breast cancer and cervical cancer awareness and education throughout the year by trained cancer survivor volunteers. In addition, through our community partnership with Tampa Bay Community Cancer Network (TBCCN) — Moffitt Cancer Center, we also provide colon cancer and lung cancer awareness and education.

When & Where?

Meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of Every Month. Meetings start at 6:00 P.M at Mount Zion Missionary Progressive Baptist Church.
