Who We Are


Praise Is The Cure® (PITC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that launched in 2005 as a breast cancer awareness to bring valuable information and supportive services to the black community regarding breast cancer and healthy lifestyles. The vision is to ensure that all Black women and men are privy to awareness, intervention and prevention resources. PITC was founded by Anita Conner a twenty-year Breast Cancer survivor, along with her daughter Kerri, a 10-year survivor. Praise Is The Cure® is a pillar of hope and inspiration for individuals in the black community battling this disease. With our continued outreach and awareness efforts in the community, we have annually impacted at least 45,000 members of our local and regional communities. PITC is supported by our dedicated volunteers, our leadership team, and a host of corporate sponsors, faith-based institutions, nonprofit organizations, community leaders, and generous individuals who donate yearly. The rates of Black Women being diagnosed and/or dying early from this disease are rising steadily. THIS MUST STOP! It is imperative for us to encourage each other to seek regular health screenings and talk openly with our families and friends about our health struggles or even minor concerns. Our community historically is one of strong faith. With that in mind, PITC wants to instill the belief that no matter what, we will get through this together. The initial vision of Anita and Kerri has spanned into a year-round campaign that motivates, educates, and encourages Black women to keep living! If you would like to support our mission to provide hope, health and healing for our community, please visit our “Ways to Help” page. We appreciate all your continued support and look forward to being victorious in the fight against breast cancer.
