In October 2017, I became 1 of the 1 of every 8 women who will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Did you know that only 5-10% of breast cancers can be linked to genes inherited from a parent? Did you know that about 85% of breast cancers occur in people with no family history of breast cancer? Did you know that there are different kinds of breast cancer that require different treatment (Estrogen Positive/Progesterone Positive/HER2 Positive), that have targeted treatments (Estrogen Positive & HER2 Positive) or that have few specific treatment (Triple Negative)?
I didn’t. But now I do & LBBC is an organization that helps women and men like me, who have a form of breast cancer, learn about treatments and cope with the physical, emotional, and financial effects of breast cancer.
That’s why I’ll be doing Yoga virtually (due to Covid-19) with the LBBC Reach & Raise family on Sunday, May 17, to support this organization that helps so many.
So, please support me and Living Beyond Breast Cancer and the money I raise will help LBBC continue to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support. And if you can, join my team, Tricia’s Troupe, and we can enjoy yoga-ing together!
Since its launch in Philadelphia in 2001, Reach & Raise has attracted more than $2 million in individual support! In 2016 alone, we reached more than 550,000 people through our comprehensive website, informative webinars and publications and in-person conferences. With your help, we can increase our reach and help even more people impacted by this disease.
