Secret Sisters Society Celebrates Cancer Survivors

Wednesday, hundreds of women from all walks of life came to the Notre Dame campus to celebrate survivors; they are survivors of various types of cancer, including breast cancer.

Fourteen-hundred people attended the Fifth Annual Secret Sisters Society Luncheon and Fashion Show.

And, for another year, the host was NewsCenter 16’s Tricia Sloma.

The group's goal is to raise money to provide free mammograms to women in the community who cannot afford one.

It’s a part of the efforts of the Women's Task Force in South Bend and it's one way people can help others in the community.

“There are so many things we can't do in life to make life different for others, but here's something that we can do,” says Joan Lennon of the Women’s Task Force. “Because we can come together, we can celebrate survivorship of these incredible cancer survivors and we can become a Secret Sister member, thereby helping a woman in our community.”

The group has arranged more than 1300 free mammograms and follow-up care for women across Michiana.

If you are interested in becoming a member, call 574-472-6095 for more information, or visit the Women's Task Force, online.
