hen you have been comforted then you are a com-fort to others” is a scripture JoAnn Cottman lives
every day. A hospital volunteer for the last 14 years, she also
preaches the benefits of early detection, the importance of
mammograms, and the need to be more aware about breast
cancer to anyone who will listen.
On July 14, 2010 Cottman was highlighted and introduced
at Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s (LBBC) preview party forthe nonprofit organization’s annual gala, The Butterfly Ball.She is being honored for her commitment to making a dif-
ference at LBBC and in the breast cancer community. Cottman
and the other honorees, like butterflies, have journeyedthrough the trials and tribulations of their breast cancerdiagnosis and have found a compassionate way to bring
hope to others. A regular LBBC volunteer, Cottman’s
biggesttrial after breast cancer surgery would be the death
of herour-month old premature grandchild.The Butterfly Ball, scheduled to take place on
this year, helped LBBC raise over 500,000 for LBBC’s
education and support programs last year. As a result of the
generous donations, LBBC is able to provide programs toomen and families affected by breast cancer for little to
no cost. One of those programs, the toll-free Survivors’ Help-
line, was where Jo Ann of Philadelphia was able to drawstrength to fight her disease. Her strength, courage, andmotivation are the very characteristics that made her oneof thewomen to serve as an honoree for this event sinceit began in 1997.
Cottman, who was recently selected out of more than 100
women to participate in a White House | Black Market adcampaign along with 24 other breast cancer survivors, willbe featured in the clothing company’s October catalogmodeling select pieces from the retailer’s fall collection insupport of breast cancer awareness month. Coincidentally,
all honorees and co-chairs of the gala were dressed by White
House | Black Market for the preview party.
Diagnosed in November 2004 at age 60, her initial reaction
to ‘get through it and don’t let the fear control you’ hasbeen an inspiration to countless others including her fami-ly. She quickly made the decision that she would do what-ever the cost to rid herself of the cancer. As part of herten-year journey through diagnosis, radiation treatments
and seemingly endless medications, she looks at her breast
cancer as a newness of life and she is humbly grateful and
thankful every day to be able to tell her story where others
who were diagnosed on the same day she was, are notaround to tell their story.Visit www.lbbc.org for information about its educationand support programs.
