Among the myriad resources available for women with breast cancer, Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) is a winner.
Founded in 1991 by Marisa C. Weiss, MD, a radiation oncologist, the organization offers a library of free guides and booklets, a breast cancer helpline, conferences, live 90-minute panel discussions available in person or online, webinars, and an online writing program to help breast cancer patients express themselves.
In addition, LBBC offers a small quantity of life grants and a nutrition education workshop series for women in the Greater Philadelphia area.
Specialized programs includes those for young women, men, African-Americans, and LGBT people.
Their medical board includes doctors specializing in palliative care, radiation oncology, integrative cancer treatment, and breast cancer research. Other professionals include clinical social workers and professors of family medicine and community health.
LBBC is nationally recognized and relies on volunteers and donors to enable them to offer their services for free.
