October: Educate About ILC
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month.  Please join LBCA to educate about the Signs of Lobular Breast Cancer - the second most common cellular type of breast cancer that alone is the 6th most frequently diagnosed cancer of women in the U.S.  Help spread the word with your networks about a subtype of breast cancer that most have never heard of, is understudied and needs more research to refine therapies for patients.


Spread the Word about ILC

A new research consortium in the European Union seeks to increase collaboration and advance research into therapies for patients with lobular breast cancer (ILC).

The European Lobular Breast Cancer Consortium (ELBCC) plans its next consortium meeting at the KU Leuven (25th of November), where they will discuss ILC clinical trial and funding options. Patient advocates will attend and contribute to the ELBCC meeting.

LBCA Resource Library
The Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance has added three educational sessions to our online ILC resource library

Lobular Breast Cancer: An Evening of Learning hosted by the Cleveland Clinic features a panel answering patient questions about lobular breast cancer.  The ILC Lunch and Learn held at the 2019 Northwest Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference provides an overview of ILC with particular focus on metastatic disease.  The Advocate-led Roundtable Discussion co-hosted with SHARE Cancer Support provides a basic overview of ILC and reviews the role of advocacy to advance research and raise the profile of lobular breast disease.
