Chrisann Philipson, one of our 5 founders lost her battle with breast cancer April 29, 2016. She was the inspiration for the founding of Embrace Your Sisters. It was because of her financial struggles, while being treated for breast cancer, her friends and sister realized this need was real. A person going through breast cancer treatment should not have to choose, to either pay for a treatment or pay for housing or other necessities. She had a great heart that touched many in the community and will be missed by all.
