Helping Others with Lobular Breast Cancer
Many women find the Lobular Breast Cancer Alliance (LBCA) by searching the internet for information about invasive lobular breast cancer (ILC), treatment options, and how to connect with people who understand and care about what they’re going through. The fourth conversation in a series of Advocate Chats focuses on how advocates can support others through their involvement with and promotion of peer mentor programs for women living with ILC.
Lori Petitti, LBCA founding advocate and peer mentor, Dale Semler, breast cancer helpline manager at SHARE Cancer Support, and Betsey Bryant, After Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD) senior program specialist, come together to share ideas on how you can become a volunteer or trained peer mentor to give others with ILC the support they’re so desperately seeking. Find out more about our partner organizations that provide support to people with breast cancer on our Allies page.
Learn more about LBCA and advocacy by visiting our Research Advocacy Toolkit and Advocacy Through Education pages, and reading Research Advocacy Resources and Questions and Answers, which provides many links to organizations that provide training and opportunities for involvement in research advocacy.
