In April 2010, Sisters Network Inc. made history by hosting the 1st National African Breast Cancer 5K Walk/ Run in Houston. A portion of the funds raised from this event will benefit Sisters Network Inc. Breast Cancer Assistance Program (BCAP). BCAP provides assistance to breast cancer survivors currently in treatment and facing financial challenges. Financial assistance is paid directly to third party provider and covers hospital, clinic, physician, medical groups, medical related lodging, medical insurance, co pay, rent and utilities. BCAP is also an early detection program which provides free mammograms, ultrasounds and biopsies.
