$25,000 travel grant sponsor to LBBC’s Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference
Philadelphia, PA April 28-30, 2017
To continue our mission of helping breast cancer patients with their financial struggles, Forward4Tobi provided a $25,000 travel grant to Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s 2017 conference for metastatic breast cancer patients. This is a conference that Tobi attended several times and found so much value in connecting with others with the same prognosis. This year over 500 women and men attended to learn more about living well – physically, emotionally and spiritually – with metastatic breast cancer. At the conference they attended sessions on the latest medical updates, communicating with loved ones, caregiving, scientific research and clinical trials, and living with uncertainty.
Our travel grant helped over 200 women attend the conference by covering travel expenses or conference fee waivers. These women were so incredibly grateful and many thanked us personally at our booth. We love meeting our grant recipients and it warms out hearts when we get a hug of gratitude! We were honored to help Tobi’s ‘mets’ sisters and pay it Forward4Tobi.
