Sisters On A Mission (SOAM)

soam1A non-profit, breast cancer support and health resource organization

Providing information to hundreds of women, their families and friends about the risk factors of breast cancer while promoting healthy lifestyles and the processes of early detection such as mammography, regular doctors’ visits and breast self exams. If there is a family history of breast cancer, this should be discussed with your doctor and/or family health care provider. A voice in the community providing support and vital information with an on-going commitment to breast cancer education and awareness for early detection and survivorship.

2010 Presidential Citizen's Medal Recipient. Diagnosed in 1991 and 1999, a two-time breast cancer survivor, is Founder and CEO. “My lumps were found through breast self-examinations." After realizing that vital information was not readily available in our communities, at that time, I began a personal mission to enlighten, inform and empower African-American women and their families, caretakers and supporters about breast cancer, the risk factors and the processes and benefits of early detection… Thus the beginning of Sisters on a Mission... “I stress the importance of asking questions and finding out as much as you can about the disease that has disrupted your life.”

Geri-McIntoshGeri McIntosh
Finance Chair

Geri McIntosh was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1980 and 1985. "My recovery is due to breast self-examinations, early diagnosis, support and God’s blessing. It has often been a scary yet wonderful journey of giving and receiving support and education. Much of that support came from Sisters On a Mission."

A native of Sussex County, Delaware, a 1977 graduate of Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes, Delaware. In August 2006, diagnosed with Stage 2 gastric cancer requiring surgery, chemotherapy and radiation until June 2007. I sold my home and moved back to Delaware so my mother could aid in my care. I have been healed of gastric cancer for 5 years. In December 2007, while having a routine mammogram, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer, underwent a lumpectomy and radiation. "Being diagnosed with cancer does not mean life is ending; it’s actually a renewal of life! Give God glory, honor, and praise!"
