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 no current 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 on the Art Museum Steps 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 on the Parkway!
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.
