The mission of The Firefly Sisterhood is to foster one-to-one connections between women recently diagnosed with breast cancer and inspirational survivors for hope, healing, and encouragement. Breast cancer may be complex, but Firefly makes getting support easy. Breast cancer is complex. Support shouldn’t be. Learn more below!
Every business has a story, tell us yours.
Firefly Sisterhood believes that no woman should go through breast cancer alone. We connect women experiencing breast cancer with an inspirational peer mentor who is also a survivor.
“(My Guide) was and continues to be so helpful. I honestly don't know what I would have done without her. Whether a late-night exchange of texts or coming to hang with me at chemo to her wonderful notes on what to expect, she got me through it.” -Hanna, Firefly Participant (Name changed to protect privacy)
