About Living Beyond Breast Cancer

 
Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) is a nonprofit organization whose vision is a world where no one impacted by breast cancer feels uninformed or alone and whose mission is to connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support.  Since its 1991 formation in suburban Philadelphia, LBBC has grown into a nationally recognized resource that provides education and support services for individuals affected by breast cancer.
 
These services are developed in collaboration with the country’s leading oncologists, health professionals and ally organizations and are delivered by people who demonstrate an understanding of the physical and emotional complexities of this disease.  LBBC offers its communications in a variety of printed and digital formats, as well as in person and through its toll-free Breast Cancer Helpline.
