“I’ve never been much for groups, but the LBL group is different and I am different because of them.  It gives me hope, inspiration, courage, and makes me feel like I finally belong somewhere.”

“This whole trip has been very uplifting, literally and figuratively. It’s been a real blessing to socialize and get to know other thrivers, and to really push yourself beyond things you thought you could do.”

“I made friendships with people who understand what I am going through.”
