About Us

Dr. Khayla Sewell Bernard & myself (Shayla Sewell) created this non-profit organization in remembrance of our late mother, Joyce Ann Perkins Dolphus. Our mother lost her battle with breast cancer in 2018, which has had a profound effect on our lives and our family’s lives as well.   We hope through this organization that we can bring awareness to breast cancer and the importance of preventative care, screenings, support systems, education and much more. “Helping Us Survive” is our goal, to reach people and make a difference in their lives and help with the grief of their loss.
