Mission Statement

The mission of Libby's Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation is threefold: 1) offer wish-granting to women with stage IV breast cancer; 2) offer support and advocacy to women diagnosed with breast cancer; and 3) help women avoid a late stage cancer diagnosis by providing uninsured and underinsured women of Central Florida with free mammograms and breast health services.

Description

Libby's Legacy Breast Cancer Foundation (LLBCF) was formed in 2007 after the great loss of Libby Maynard to stage IV breast cancer. Libby skipped her annual mammogram only ONE year and was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer the very next screening. She wanted to see the world before she died, but she never got that chance. In her memory, her daughter Robin has started a foundation that grants wishes to breast cancer patients and works to help women avoid late-stage cancer by providing needy women with free breast health services, including mammograms.

Libby's Legacy is a unique, generous breast cancer foundation that is serving the needs of Central Floridians, and it can expand and serve more clients as its funds grow. Please consider supporting this important organization and its mission to help women with stage IV breast cancer and help women avoid late stage cancer through mammography.
