Dear Friends of the Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance,
We’re on our way!!!!
The other day I sent you a message about our need and hope to expand
LBCA to become even more effective to advocate for patients and to serve as a hub for lobular research and education.
Well, fantastic news!
Anonymous donors were so enthusiastic about our vision that they offered to match any gift to LBCA received before December 31, 2019 up to $20,000. Every donation now counts double!
If we meet our goal we will be so much further along towards broadening our education reach and advocating for lobular research … and finding better imaging, treatments and follow-up care to help patients with this disease!
We have come a long way since we formed LBCA three years ago out of frustration over the lack of information and research dedicated to the “sneaky” lobular cancer that existed then.
I recently shared with you the letter I had received from a member with lobular breast cancer, Laurie Hutcheson. Laurie said that “LBCA saved her sanity!”
As a founder and leader of the LBCA, I am so grateful that we have helped Laurie and thousands of others through the efforts of our scrappy, grassroots start-up. But we are still only powered by volunteers, our determination, and a shoestring budget. We are at a crossroads and must do more to keep the momentum going and be responsive to our growing numbers.
As you know, there is no other organization like the LBCA
focused on lobular breast cancer education and advancing research.
We partner with ILC researchers and provide information and resources about ILC. With more than 2,500 subscribers including patients, clinicians and researchers from around the world and thousands of web hits a month, we continue to grow quickly.
Will you support our work with a tax-deductible contribution to LBCA
? As I noted, the time to donate is now so we can take advantage of this extraordinary opportunity to double whatever is donated, due to the generosity of our anonymous donor.
Please make the largest tax-deductible donation you can. Any contribution made now will be worth twice as much.
If you prefer to make a tax-deductible contribution by check, please send your check payable to our fiscal sponsor non-profit organization - Social and Environmental Entrepreneurs (SEE), 23532 Calabasas Rd., Suite A Calabasas, CA 91302. Please write LBCA in the memo line
We are very grateful for your support! Your contributions will help us promote ILC and have a significant patient advocate presence in the upcoming second annual Lobular Breast Cancer Symposium in May 2020
. Thank you!
