Our Company has a vision of empowering women at every stage of life’s journey. For everyone affected by breast cancer, Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) is the best resource we know, providing people with trusted breast cancer information and a community of support. LBBC has connected countless people to the resources they need to transform the experience of a diagnosis into a journey of support, friendship and inspiration. White House Black Market began the partnership with their first campaign for LBBC in 2004. Over the last 15 years our family of brands – Chico’s, White House Black Market, and Soma - alongside with you, our generous customers, have raised over $9 million for LBBC.
Chico’s FAS is the largest corporate partner for LBBC. The relationship has helped LBBC more than double, creating meaningful change in the lives of more than one million people who use LBBC’s services and online resources.
Our commitment to the cause now incorporates a sponsorship of LBBC’s biggest annual events, conferences, seminars, webinars and the Reach & Raise movement.
Living Beyond Breast Cancer is not the cure but it is the solution when faced with the challenge of where to turn when you hear the words, “you have breast cancer.” It is a trusted friend, a library of curated resources from the best minds and clinics available and a source of HOPE. LBBC is empowerment – connecting you with information you can trust and support you can count on.
Share Strength. Share Wisdom.
The partnership is born as White House Black Market launches it’s first limited edition necklace, giving back to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. A year later the WHBM Give Hope Collection is curated, becoming an annual tradition.
Chico’s FAS donations hit the $1 million. In five years, Chico’s, White House Black Market and Soma become LBBC’s strongest corporate partners. The collaboration of resources allows LBBC to grow exponentially, expanding their services to provide grants and opportunities for women to connect on their journey to live beyond breast cancer.
The Forever 25 campaign receives national press on the CBS Early Show as White House Black Market celebrates it’s 25th Anniversary by featuring 25 breast cancer survivors in it’s Fall catalog and marketing. These women still gather today and have become a symbol of hope.
Chico’s FAS brings LBBC’s yoga event - Reach &s Raise – to Fort Myers, the corporate headquarters of the Company. The inaugural event is the most successful first time event for LBBC. Hundreds of people enjoyed an hour of yoga in the park while raising funds and awareness for breast cancer.
Chico’s FAS and Living Beyond Breast Cancer celebrate 15 years of partnership.
Chico’s FAS Associates get involved in Reach & Raise events in Philadelphia and Denver. Through the years, our partnership has inspired women to feel beautiful along the journey by creating a lasting impact and changing the lives of all those affected by breast cancer.
