Support the LBBC Fund

With your help, we can increase the number of grants we give so people can focus on their health, not their bills.


The Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund provides one-time grants to help offset basic living costs for people in treatment for breast cancer.

Since 2006, when the Living Beyond Breast Cancer Fund was created, we have disbursed over $1.6 million in grants to over 2,000 people diagnosed with breast cancer, helping to decrease part of the financial burden of breast cancer diagnosis.


Being diagnosed with breast cancer has changed my life completely. Physically, mentally, and especially financially. Not knowing how I was going to be able to pay my expenses, not being able to work and also not having any kind of income. LBBC helped me and blessed me and my family. It helped me to have a peace of mind.

Out of all cancer types, breast cancer has the highest treatment costs.

  • One recent study found that 12 years after their diagnosis (stages I-III), women had between $1,000 and $3,300 out-of-pocket care costs per year.
  • Another study found that women with employer-sponsored insurance diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer paid $5,800 out of pocket (including premiums, the monthly costs people pay to have health insurance).
  • People living with metastatic breast cancer can sometimes have costs that are even higher.

In addition to the medical costs of breast cancer treatment, there may be costs related to traveling to and from treatment, taking time off from work, treating some side effects (like scalp cooling or wigs for hair loss, for example), and child care.

Help us double the number of grants we give this year so people can focus on their health, not their bills.



This grant has helped relieve some financial stress during a very difficult time. I cannot put into words how very grateful I am for every single person who has donated to LBBC and shown their support and love. This grant was an uplifting, generous, much needed gift and I am so very grateful.
