Breast Cancer Advocacy

Ever wondered about how you can become an advocate?LBBC New Logo 2015

There’s a whole spectrum of advocacy: from advocating for yourself, to advocating for others in your community, from media advocacy (even social media) and research advocacy to policy and legislative advocacy, and everything in between. There are so many ways to be an advocate!

Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s Young Women’s Initiative is now accepting applications for the Summer 2015 Young Advocate Program. This program will train a small group of young women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer to use their personal experience to make a difference in their communities. This year’s training will be June 12-14 in Philadelphia, PA.

This program is offered to women who were diagnosed with breast cancer before age 45, live in the United States, and have an annual household income at least 200% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines ($22,980 for a single person). Preference is given to women diagnosed within the last 3 years or living with metastatic breast cancer. Selected participants will receive up to $850 in financial assistance to help offset the cost of attending, including travel.

Apply online or complete a paper application. The application deadline is Wednesday, April 15.
