I am beyond excited and honored to have been asked to be a co-captain of the "LBBC Volunteer Heroes" for Living Beyond Breast Cancer's annual Reach & Raise. What is Reach & Raise you may ask? Since its launch in Philadelphia in 2002, Reach & Raise has attracted more than $4 million in individual support! In 2018 alone, they served more than 600,000 people through their comprehensive website, informative webinars and publications and in-person conferences. With your help, they can increase their reach and help even more people impacted by this disease, providing assistance via grants, payments directed towards electricity/heat/etc, the list truly is ongoing.
Due to the Corona Virus this year more individuals living with cancer are in more dior financial assistance than ever before. Not only are appointments, treatments, and needed medications becoming unavailable or postponed, direct payment for these daily living necessities are becoming more difficult to sustain.
As an individual living with metastatic breast cancer, I can vouch firsthand of the trials and tribulations myself and my family has/have endured, and sadly continue to do so. At times I find/have found myself frustrated with the amount of money it takes for me to sustain a quality of life that a typical 38 year old with 3 little kiddos should, and it is draining, not only emotionally, physically, but financially.
If you are willing and/or able I ask that you join our "LBBC Volunteer Heroes" either through the $35 registration (where you will be provided with a live link on May 17th to join in LBBC's Annual Reach & Raise Yoga Event) or through a monetary donation. Either of these options WILL go directly to assisting breast cancer patients currently in treatment to get the assistance THEY DESPAREATLY NEED.
Let's be honest, cancer SUCKS, and it sucks so many things from the patient, to the direct caregiver, to the family, to the friends and even the acquaintances. Each of us sadly has more than likely known someone or been touched directly by cancer. Please join me in raising awareness, monetary funds and virtual/community involvement to help those desperately in need. You will not be disappointed. For more information by all means PLEASE reach out to me directly. Teamwork definitely does make teamwork, and our team.......is kick ass!
