Reach out to LBBC for support – find your sister survivor

This entry was written by Lisa Marsella, one of the 25 finalists selected to participate in the photo shoot and ad-campaign for White House | Black Market:

I am metastatic stage IV and currently undergoing treatment. Unfortunately for some of us, we will have to battle the “pink beast” constantly.

Please do not feel like you are alone. Through LBBC you can find other women that share your personal experience. There is a bond between sister survivors and through LBBC you can find the support you need. You must remain strong and positive. Always keep in mind that you have survived. You may not be the same person after breast cancer than you were before breast cancer. I certainly am not; but in addition to the physical changes and side effects, I’ve also found a strength and appreciation for life that I didn’t have before. Live every day, love every day, accept yourself and be free.

Please reach out to LBBC and you truly will find the support you need. There are others out there who will communicate their personal experiences.

Be well and God bless.

Lisa’s daughter surprised her with a trip to the tattoo parlor for her birthday. They would both get pink ribbon tattoos in honor of Lisa’s journey with breast cancer.

  2. I too am a Stage IV girl and love all that LBBC offers to us woman with metastatic cancer. I also met a special “sister survivor ” whom I got to know and love and kicks me in the butt when I need it . We all need someone to make sure we think positive and don’t let this dreaded disease rule our lives. Fight as hard as we need to , and know we can beat this !

  3. Wow!! You are awesome!!! I had the pleasure of meeting you at the photo shoot for WHBM and you showed such courage and strength. Not to mention you are a beautiful women inside and out.

    God Bless and keep you!! I am standing right there with you SISTER!!
