Our Mission: Improving the quality of life for those impacted by breast cancer by funding needed support services in Northern Virginia.
A Different Shade of Pink.
Why The Step Sisters?
We have established relationships with local businesses to provide our services. By working with these service providers and our participating hospitals, we are able to help ease the burden of this disease for some of those in need. We partner with hospitals in the Northern Virginia area to provide the following services at no charge to the patient:
Treatment Transportation – one of the most common barriers to successful course of treatment is the patient’s access to consistent transportation.
Professional House Cleaning – Most patients are the caretakers of their homes. Relieving the burden of having to clean the house is one way we can help a patient be able to focus on getting well and spending quality time with family.
Meals – Providing food stability in a time of crisis alleviates tremendous stress from patients.
Childcare – Care for children means patients will have needed help in order to receive treatment and take time to heal, while knowing the kids are in the best of hands.
Lawn Care & Snow Removal – Overwhelming tasks such as lawn care or daunting impediments such as snow removal should not get in the way of treatments.
Pet Services – We can help you make sure that even your furry family members aren’t neglected during your treatment.
Patients are eligible for services if they are referred by participating hospitals. Recipients of services are identified by Nurse Navigators who work closely with patients and are in the best position to determine who will benefit most from these services. We currently provide services to patients with: Inova Loudoun, Inova Fairfax, Inova Fair Oaks, Inova Alexandria and Reston Hosptial Center.
If you are a breast cancer patient in need of support, please contact the Nurse Navigator at the hospital where you receive treatment. They will help you access the services provided by the Step Sisters organization.
