25th Anniversary Campaign
We are pleased to share with you an exciting campaign to celebrate Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s Silver Anniversary! Kicked off in 2016, the 25th Anniversary Campaign is a $1 million fundraising challenge to secure LBBC’s future, honor our past and highlight our significant achievements. As of June 17, 2019, we have raised over $920,000.
It may be hard to imagine today, but when LBBC was founded in 1991 there was little, if any, information available to help people understand their breast cancer diagnoses and treatments. Peer support was not easy to find. LBBC was founded to address these vital needs by creating a supportive and caring environment for women diagnosed with breast cancer to gather together and access accurate, cutting-edge information in easy-to-understand formats.
The organization has experienced tremendous growth since then, touching the lives of over 500,000 people across the country annually. We are proud that our mission remains focused on what matters most — providing trusted information and a community of support to people impacted by breast cancer. Over the years the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer has rapidly evolved. The ways that women seek and find information has transformed as well because of the evolution of the internet and social media. Access to information --both good and bad -- is readily available. Treatments for the disease have become more personalized and complex. New stressors are put on patients to understand their diagnoses, participate in their treatment planning, and in making decisions about their lives.
For each of its 28 years, LBBC has worked creatively to stay ahead of these changes while gaining the respect of individuals and members of the medical and nonprofit communities for our brand of high quality information and deep compassion. Looking towards the future as both medical and information technology will continue to change, we need increased financial support to help us continue to serve those impacted by breast cancer. Funds raised through the 25th Anniversary Campaign will support this work.
LBBC strives to be the national organization providing support, information and programming for all people who have been affected by breast cancer regardless of age, stage of disease or financial circumstances. We remain vigilant of our responsibility to create a world where no one impacted by breast cancer feels uninformed or alone.
Help us make this $1 million goal a reality. Your support signals your belief in our mission and the importance you place on our ability to carry out our programming for the next 25 years. As a donor, you will become a member of the 25th Anniversary Circle, a philanthropic community of individuals who have made a significant contribution to this campaign.
