Cierra Sisters was founded by Bridgette Hempstead shortly after her own diagnosis. It is a breast cancer survivor and support organization. The name is rooted in African origins; “Cierra” meaning “knowing”, reminding us that knowledge is in fact power.

Our mission is to break the cycle of fear and increase knowledge concerning breast cancer in the African-American and underserved communities.

Cierra Sisters has, for over 24 years been a wellspring of support and life-saving information for African American women living with breast cancer.

This is achieved via large scale presentations, consistent one-on-one’s with healthcare professionals, and diverse outreach efforts. Though we are based in Seattle Washington, Cierra Sisters is committed to increasing local, state, and nationwide attention to the devastating impact of breast cancer.
