Kim says, “After being diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014, I was at a loss for where to turn. I scoured the internet for facts and reassurance. In my search for resources and encouragement, I found Living Beyond Breast Cancer. LBBC’s mission to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support resonated with me. The Community Connector leadership volunteer program has given me the opportunity to give back and help others by raising funds and awareness about LBBC in my local community. This role has been an important part of my healing and survivorship from breast cancer.”
