Women Donate Thousands of Ounces of Breast Milk for Those Fighting Breast Cancer

Seeing the babies grow up is ultimately rewarding

Anderson-Sierra stressed that her motivation for donating breast milk came after her daughter was born prematurely and was in need of donated breast milk herself.  “Even though I was a producer for my last child, I couldn’t even do it for my own daughter. When milk finally came in, I wanted to really make use of it and get that milk out there” said Anderson-Sierra. Today, she is known as a hero within her community, making a difference in countless mothers’ and children's lives. “What goes into this labor of love, the time and the wear and tear on the body. It’s amazing to hear how the people I donate to say our baby is thriving because of your breast milk. It’s been wonderful to see these babies grow up,” she said.
