Lynn Folkman Auspitz
Lynn is the manager of community engagement, which means everything volunteer related. She manages and implements the LBBC’s national volunteer initiatives including the Young Advocate and Hear My Voice leadership volunteer programs. Lynn has extensive professional experience in special events, meeting planning, operations, marketing and communications in the nonprofit, corporate and government sectors.
Lynn was introduced to LBBC shortly after she was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009. While she was in active treatment, she attended the fall conference and was drawn to the empowering nature of the LBBC mission. She became a volunteer shortly after and trained on the Breast Cancer Helpline in September 2011 and joined the staff in 2012.
Lynn’s interests include holistic health, spiritual exploration, reading, writing, walking and attending theater. Lynn lives in Philadelphia with her husband.
What inspires my work at LBBC:Although, I had great support during my breast cancer diagnosis, there were times where I felt overwhelmed, isolated and alone. When I connected to LBBC, I started to meet so many others who had been diagnosed with breast cancer who understood exactly what I was experiencing which helped me greatly during my diagnosis and beyond. Through the work that I do at LBBC, my desire is for everyone to get the support and education they want in need in the manner which is best for them, so that they ultimately know that they too are not alone.
