What inspires my work at LBBC:Working for LBBC doesn’t feel like “work” to me. I feel blessed to be part of an amazing team who truly care about the people we serve. I’m also inspired by the stories of those touched by breast cancer. Hearing their stories keeps me going and motivates me to help make an impact in some way even if it’s just simply putting a smile on someone’s face.
