Read how LGFB helped Sarah to gain confidence and reconnect with herself during cancer treatment. Read the story

"LGFB helped me find the old Sarah. It helped me see her in the mirror, the Sarah I knew. It’s helped me face what I’m going through, it’s helped me reconnect with me as a person rather than me the cancer victim."
