Living Beyond Breast Cancer
July 30, 2009

I am 54 and a 3 year survivor. I connected with LBBC when I was first diagnosed and I still find them to be a great support and a fountain of valuable information. The website provides the latest in breast cancer news, current medical research reported from the annual meetings of the American Society of Clinical Oncology, as well as forums for women to connect with others who are in a similar situation - i.e. newly diagnosed, living with metastatic disease, women of color, etc. My favorite LBBC feature is the monthly teleconferences when a doctor or doctors discuss a particular topic (the topic for this month is hormonal therapy). The doctors provide up-to-date information in easy-to-understand language for the lay person. The listening audience then has the opportunity to ask the doctor questions - no other forum provides this unique service! If you miss the teleconference, replays and downloads are available on the website. LBBC is one of the best organizations for reliable information and support for breast cancer patients and survivors.
