I’m uniting with Living Beyond Breast Cancer to support people diagnosed with breast cancer at the 20th anniversary of Reach & Raise.
Through the power of yoga, I will reach out and raise funds to ensure that anyone diagnosed with breast cancer has access to trusted information and community of support. No one should face breast cancer alone. Everyone should have reliable information to make the best decisions for themselves.
When I was first diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, I was overwhelmed and felt adrift with little to no knowledge of my disease, lines of therapies and managing side effects. Through LBBC, I attended virtual conferences and webinars where I gained the power of knowledge from doctors and researchers. I was able to sort through what was best for me. I learned how to manage side effects, and I also learned from others like me that have MBC. With the power of love and support from my family, friends and colleagues, and the knowledge and support from LBBC, I have been able to keep pushing through.
Since its launch in 2001, Reach & Raise has raised more than $4 million to support those diagnosed with breast cancer. 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 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.
I am proud to be supporting Living Beyond Breast Cancer and all those they support each day. Please support me with a donation today and consider joining me on Sunday, May 16 for Reach & Raise. Much love and peace to you all. I am honored that you would support me on this journey.
