I’m uniting with Living Beyond Breast Cancer to support people diagnosed with breast cancer at the 20th anniversary of Reach & Raise!
LBBC has been a foundational element of support, education, and empowerment throughout my breast cancer journey. In particular, Reach and Raise means a lot to me personally: In 2020 I was invited to speak publicly and share my story with over one-thousand participants. I was truly moved and healed by the powers of community, love, and yoga that ARE Reach and Raise!
This year I am fundraising for the LBBC Volunteer Heroes Team. Every dollar we raise will go to the LBBC Fund, which directly supports women and men going through treatment with grants to pay their living expenses. Breast Cancer is expensive!! Financial assistance is a pivotal support for patients, and financial vulnerability has increased or worsened for many during the Covid-19 Pandemic.
No one should face breast cancer alone. Everyone should have reliable information to make the best decisions for themselves.
Living Beyond Breast Cancer shares wisdom and connection via conferences, events, a peer-to-peer helpline and more. They are committed to creating a culture of acceptance—where sharing the diversity of the lived experience of breast cancer fosters self-advocacy and hope. Each year, Living Beyond Breast Cancer reaches over 600,000 people with their emotional, practical and evidence-based content that is meaningful to those newly diagnosed, in-treatment, post-treatment and living with metastatic disease.
Living Beyond Breast Cancer is one of the highest ranked breast cancer charities in the United States. For 15 straight years, Living Beyond Breast Cancer has earned a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator, the highest possible ranking for financial health and accountability.
