LBBC is an amazing organization that I am proud to say I get to work with on a regular basis through the partnership my organization has with them through the Cis B. Golder Grant. From the depth of their educational programs offered to breast cancer patients, to their survivor hotline and various conferences that are tailored to breast cancer survivors of all types, to their amazing events, to their beautiful marketing materials: LBBC's name 'Living Beyond Breast Cancer' is allowing woman across the nation to truly do just that: LIVE.BEYOND their cancer experience - which is a magnificent gift that is touching thousands of breast cancer survivors nationwide. Through the Cis. B Golder Grant - not only is LBBC able to provide a wealth of education and support to breast cancer patients, but also direct financial assistance. God Bless You for the work you do, and I look forward to working together on the Cis B. Golder Grant in the future.
