About S.D. Inc.

A few years after the passing of my mother Founder and CEO
Bernice was diagnosed with early stage Breast Cancer.

My first thought was let me take a breath “Lord I know you
are here with me, I trust you…” My theme song throughout
my journey was one I often heard my mother hum in church
as a child “ I will Trust In the Lord.” A song I sung faithfully
everyday there was a treatment…

After two surgeries, several weeks of radiation and countless
visits to several specialists I experienced several oversights
during my recovery. While most of my medical needs were met
through a great team of specialist and surgeons the obvious was
definitely lacking.

Between my mother’s journey and my own God breathed life
in my spirit and form Sista’s Daughter’s Inc.
The organization is geared towards community outreach,
support for women and their families. We intend to enhance lives
by way of seminars, hands on workshops and informed literature.

Sista’s Daughter’s Inc.
Belief that;
We are striving to survive; we are all Sista’s for Life. Supporting
every step of the way….
