About SBCI

We are Sisters By Choice

Welcome to Sisters By Choice Inc. We are an innovative leader in breast cancer education, awareness and support for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Sisters By Choice (SBC) was founded in 1989 by Dr. Rogsbert F. Phillips-Reed, a prominent Atlanta-based breast surgeon, SBC has evolved into a multi-faceted organization providing services for the uninsured and underserved women.

SBC provides over 800 free mammograms and breast exams to uninsured, unemployed and: homeless women each year as well as providing free educational seminars, workshops, and health fairs to promote breast cancer awareness.

This year, one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer and thousands will not receive lifesaving screenings and treatment because they either lack access or resources to receive quality breast care.
