Insight, Winter 2016/2017

The cover story of the winter 2016/2017 issue of Insight takes a closer look at one of the most common breast cancer treatments. In "The Choice: When Is Chemotherapy the Right Treatment for Breast Cancer?" women who have had, or have avoided chemotherapy share their stories, and oncologist Pallav K. Mehta, MD talks about how doctors decide whether to recommend chemotherapy.

In another feature, called "Health Insurance Marketplace: What to Know and How to Choose," we give you updates on the health insurance marketplace and provide tips on choosing the plan that's right for you.

This issue also features a big "thank you" to you for sharing your "BodyTude!" An LBBC social media campaign encouraged people with breast cancer to share their body image stories by putting photos on Instagram. We got great responses, a few of which appear in this issue, along with some of the stories behind the photos.

Insight's "Giving" section provides coverage of our record-breaking 25th Anniversary Butterfly Ball, which raised more than $950,000. It also profiles Michael Durbin, who, along with his company, Manchu Timas Fashion, has been been an invaluable donor to LBBC. In addition, it details our Reach & Raise On the Road fundraisers, held across the country on Sept. 17 and 18, 2016.
