LIVING BEYOND BREAST CANCER AND MYBCTEAM ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP

Collaboration unites twenty years of nonprofit service with dynamic social media network

April 2, 2013; Philadelphia, PA | Nonprofit organization Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) announced today a partnership with MyBCTeam (www.MyBCTeam.com)   a new social network for women facing breast cancer. This partnership will link the women of MyBCTeam with LBBC’s extensive resources in an interactive and dynamic community

If you're diagnosed with breast cancer, it should be easy to find the best people and resources around to help you ,” says MyBCTeam co-founder Mary Ray.  “LBBC has established itself as one of the country’s most respected breast cancer nonprofit organizations and we’re thrilled to have them as a MyBCTeam partner. Their resources are designed to help women of all ages and stages of breast cancer. When a woman faces breast cancer, she’s looking for not only answers, but also connections – this partnership allows us to offer both.”

MyBCTeam is a free social network for women facing breast cancer.  Instead of utilizing a networking structure that promotes anonymity, MyBCTeam provides  women a safe environment to actually get to know one another and make real, lasting connections. These connections create the foundation of their individual “breast cancer team” - women and providers they personally connect with and recommend. The site was developed by MyHealthTeams, creators of online social networks specifically for people in the United States and Canada with chronic health conditions.  

“The partnership provides the MyBCTeam community direct access to our expert resources,” adds Elyse Spatz Caplan, MA, LBBC’s director of programs and partnerships. “All of us at LBBC are committed to this effort and look forward to reaching even more women. We are excited that this vibrant online community will link women to each other and to vital support and educational information in one place. ”
