“Cierra” is an African name meaning “knowing” and reminds us that when we have knowledge, we have power against the effects of breast cancer. Cierra Sisters welcomes all cancer survivors, supporters, caregivers, family and friends.
Bridgette devotes her time helping and encouraging African-American communities which are affected by breast cancer.
