This morning, Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s CEO Jean Sachs released the following message to our friends and supporters:
All of us at Living Beyond Breast Cancer are excited to share our new vision and mission statements with you:
Our new vision
A world where no one impacted by breast cancer feels uninformed or alone.
Our new mission
To connect people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support.
These new statements were developed with the help of over 1,200 of you who responded to a survey we sent out earlier this year. Your input was used in a day-long retreat with members of the board of directors and staff. We learned what LBBC services are valued most and why so many have come to depend on our educational programs and services that allow for connection to others diagnosed with breast cancer.
For me, these new statements say with clarity what we strive to do every day and what we hope to achieve over time. Yesterday, I spoke with a long-time friend who had just been diagnosed with breast cancer. She was overwhelmed, scared and shocked. Our conversation and the resources I was able to put in her hands grounded her and provided her with enough comfort and confidence to take the next step.
This is what LBBC does every day, and it is exactly what the new vision and mission statements express.
I hope you share my enthusiasm and, as always, if you have comments I would love to hear from you.
Jean A. Sachs, MSS, MLSP
