Know the Facts
About 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime.
About 85% of breast cancers occur in women who have no family history of breast cancer.
A woman’s risk of breast cancer nearly doubles if she has a first-degree relative (mother, sister, daughter) who has been diagnosed with breast cancer.
In women under 45, breast cancer is more common in Black women than white women.

AWARENESS OF BREAST CANCER TO ALL WOMEN
AWARENESS OF BREAST CANCER TO ALL WOMEN
On April 28, 2020, I was graciously blessed to receive a care package from She Still Smiles, Inc. To have an organization like this who reaches out to those that are fighting or survived cancer is a testimony in itself. Sometimes, there is always another shoulder that is needed when we fall short of faith, pain, and just plain old tiredness. This is one avenue that I have found to be a useful resource.
Michelle Hawkins, Survivor/Care Package Recipient
I received a care package from She Still Smiles, Inc that included gift cards and kitchen items to cook my healthy meals with. I also received She Still Smiles, Inc merchandise. I was extremely happy and ever so grateful! Shalita is a great person who knows how put a smile on your face!
Kisha Thompson, Survivor/Care Package Recipient
Walking with faith helped me through my journey. Having family, friends, and survivors supporting me along the way was truly a blessing. Then came one special survivor, Shalita Lyons. Shalita called me weekly with encouraging words and awesome advice during my entire journey. I was surprised to have received a “Smile Package” from Shalita and her team from her Nonprofit Organization, She Still Smiles, Inc. They drove an hour and a half and blessed me with beautiful gifts, cards, and a virtual hug (COVID-19)! You never know how and why people are destined to be in your life.
