In honor of LBBC’s 20th anniversary, LBBC would like to introduce our year-long bloggers, Jackie Roth and Jaime Rossano. Both women, newly diagnosed, have committed to share their journeys with you by featuring a quality-of-life blog every other Friday for the entire year of 2011.
Next year, LBBC will celebrate 20 years of existence and we are happy to bring forth new, exciting and engaging ways to celebrate our mission to empower all women affected by breast cancer to live as long as possible with the best quality of life.
Whether we change the structure of our familiar fundraising events, educational programs and publication materials, LBBC is looking forward to making a new mark and exploring all the opportunities that will help us spread awareness about who we are and how we’ve grown over the last twenty years. Next year LBBC is starting a new initiative in honor of our 20th anniversary and frequent readers of the blog are in for a pleasant, yet heartfelt surprise!
Many of you are passionate and loyal readers of LBBC’s blog. LBBC’s blog is an inspiring tool intended to bring you first-hand accounts of personal and engaging breast cancer stories. We want you to feel a connection, know you’re not alone and ultimately find comfort in someone else’s compelling story. Many of you comment from entry to entry offering advice, prayers and even phone numbers. LBBC thanks you!
With that said, from the notepads of two newly diagnosed women, Jackie Roth and Jaime Rossano, LBBC’s blog will dive into the personal lives and journeys of these women. Both Jackie and Jaime have committed to blog about their breast cancer diagnoses for the entire year of 2011, bringing you quality-of-life blog entries about breast cancer experiences as they live them each day.
Both women, under the age of 30, are just starting to experience the treasures of life and they are looking forward to sharing an intimate portion of this moment in their lives. Jackie, a newlywed, is pursuing her PhD in breast cancer research. Jaime, a proud mommy of a 20 month old, learned of her diagnosis just moments before she attended her son’s first Halloween parade.
Both women are inviting you into their journeys, into their lives and into this experience. They are looking forward to taking you on the ride. With your support, feedback and following, you have the power to help them thrive in the moment of a breast cancer diagnosis.
Listen to their stories. Be moved by their individual voice. Welcome to their journeys.
