Who are the Step Sisters?

Our Mission: Improving the quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer by funding needed support services in Loudoun County and the surrounding community.

The Step Sisters are a team of breast cancer survivors, mothers, sisters, daughters, brothers, sons and fathers who have all been touched in some way by breast cancer and want to “pay it forward” for those in need.

The Step Sisters organization initially formed in 2005, but shifted its mission in 2014 to fund quality-of-life support services for local breast cancer patients in need. The Step Sisters is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Patient Testimonials

“I wanted to send along my thanks to you and the Step Sisters organization. I was having a rough/emotional day last Wednesday. When I ventured outside I found the thoughtful delivery of fresh fruit and soup from Green Grocer. Thank you doesn’t seem to cover it, please know how much this delivery of food is very much appreciated.”

“Thank you so much for the bountiful supply of fresh fruits and the cleaning service. The fresh fruit and soups were just what I needed after surgery. Best of all is to have a truly clean house, as I haven’t felt much like cleaning while undergoing chemo and couldn’t do it now as I had surgery a week ago. It was really a super pick me up to have received these unexpected gifts.”

“I recently received a wonderful gift that was made possible by Step Sisters and I want to express my heartfelt thanks to you. I recently underwent Radiation Therapy for my breast cancer @ INOVA Fair Oaks Hospital Breast Care Center. I live 2-1/2 hours away from the Hospital and my treatments were everyday, Monday through Friday for 20 days. I am in my 70’s and my husband is also. It would have been very difficult for us to make the trip to Fair Oaks everyday for my treatment and then the long ride home after the treatment as I was very tired and burned from the treatments.  Thank you so much.”
