Founded in 2010 by Yvonne Hipps-Cisco, a 6x cancer survivor, Yvonne and her daughter Catherine take action to empower others.
Combining non-traditional events such as theater productions and empowerment activities, the mother-daughter duo put a face to survivorship and caregivers.
Cisco & Cisco Productions brings resources not commonly accessible or known to at-risk communities on breast cancer and health related issues. C.C.P. is able to reach communities who otherwise may be overlooked.
Working with major Cancer organizations such as the American Cancer Society and grass-roots organizations such as Sister's Embracing Life, the Cisco family continues to produce exciting meaningful events including health fairs, fashion shows and outreach activities to communities that are undeserved.
At the age of 35, Mrs. Yvonne Hipps-Cisco, the wife of Taylor Cisco Jr and the mother of Taylor Aaron and Catherine Julieanna, was diagnosis with terminal breast cancer. Yvonne was told to get her affairs in order and given only 3 month to live. After her miraculous recovery, she continued to be a scout leader for her children and continued doing community social service work. Her goal was to teach her children to give back to those in need by providing a helping hand.
Catherine and Taylor Aaron learned the importance of volunteering from their mom as planned. Both children also developed a love for performing and a love for learning about other cultures. Taylor and Catherine grew up participating in pageants and talent shows across the United States. After their mother developed cancer three more times, they decided to use their talents to host private events to spread awareness. Over the years, the family worked with organizations such as the American Cancer Society, Y-Me and various non-profit organizations to produce outreach events. It was the desire of the Cisco family to help aide families facing cancer that led to the founding of Cisco and Cisco Productions, Inc.
Over 30 years later, while others may choose to continue quietly after surviving cancer, Yvonne and her daughter take action to empower others. The mother-daughter duo decided to put a face to survivorship and caregivers and filed for nonprofit 501c3 status to help further spread their message. Producing meaningful events that emphasize overall wellness, cancer prevention, detection and intervention, Yvonne and Catherine spread a message of hope.
