In this together
LBBC caregiver initiative
With all the uncertainties that come with a breast cancer diagnosis, it’s comforting and critical to have the unwavering support of caregivers. Living Beyond Breast Cancer understands the importance of caregivers and is dedicated to sharing their stories, providing support, and honoring the selfless acts of compassion and unconditional love they show to their loved ones diagnosed with breast cancer.
In 2022, LBBC honored a group of caregivers with the Abby Lessack Caregiver Award. The award was inspired by Amy Lessack, LBBC board member and longtime volunteer, who, in the weeks before she passed away from metastatic breast cancer, approached LBBC with a request to honor her sister Abby who was her caregiver. Amy’s wish was to celebrate and elevate the often-unrecognized contributions of caregivers like her sister, whose stories need to be told.
In carrying out Amy’s wishes and a desire to provide a space to highlight more caregivers, we are pleased to announce In this together: LBBC caregiver initiative. Join us in shining a light on caregivers, often the unsung heroes of the breast cancer experience.
Submissions are now closed. Thank you to all who participated. In this Together: LBBC Caregiver Initiative slide show video will be shared in November 2023.
Thank you to our 2023 sponsors and donors
Special thanks to Amy's family
