About Us > What We Do


We are nationally recognized for our high-quality programs and support services. We call on many volunteers, including the nation’s foremost healthcare professionals, to provide their wisdom and experiences to help you with medical, emotional, and practical concerns. Because of these volunteers and the support of our donors, we provide access to our programs and services to those in need.

We regularly evaluate and refine our current programs and develop new ones based on interest and feedback. We are intentional in our efforts to ensure our programming represents the many ways people experience breast cancer.

Living Beyond Breast Cancer is here for one reason – to connect you, your loved ones and your caregivers with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support. Here is where you learn to live with your breast cancer diagnosis. Our welcoming community stands next to you.
