Organization Information

Mission Statement

As the only organization in the US dedicated to Invasive Lobular Breast Cancer (ILC), LBCA’s mission is to make all who are touched by ILC aware of its unique characteristics and the critical need for more ILC research; to be the go-to source for information on ILC studies, clinical trials and educational tools; to foster partnerships among patients, scientists, clinicians, and breast cancer organizations to increase dialogue about ILC and research advocacy; and to fund vital ILC research. We envision a world in which lobular breast cancer is found early, treated effectively, and eradicated permanently.

Description

Founded by patient advocates in 2017 as part of a larger organization, we commenced operations as our own free-standing public charity focused specifically on invasive lobular breast cancer (ILC) in December 2021. As our organization grows, we plan to make grants to fund research on the detection and treatment of ILC, and to continue supporting patient advocate involvement in ILC research and the need for greater awareness of this disease. We will continue to expand on our efforts to bring scientifically-vetted information about ILC to the public, clinicians and the scientific community through the efforts of our staff and patient advocate volunteers.
