Online Barter Exchange Included In Nationwide LGBT Cancer Outreach

A series of �Reach for the Stars� events drawing celebrities, local business leaders and residents will mark the launch of a nationwide cancer outreach to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) community, while also celebrating the Grand Re-Opening of the landmark Sunset Vine Tower in Hollywood. It will begin with two full days of OSCARS Week Celebrity Gifting Suites on March 5 and 6, followed by the evening fund-raiser on Wednesday, March 10, 2010.

�Reach for the Stars� will be the launch of a nationwide outreach program supporting LIVESTRONG�, the Lance Armstrong Foundation (LAF), by Metropolitan Community Charities and the NYC-based National LGBT Cancer Network, which will also be establishing their Southern California HUB.

With the goal of uniting an inclusive group of civic and business leaders in support of LGBT people affected by cancer and to raise awareness about LGBT cancer issues, the three new get-a-vision programs to be launched will provide direct financial assistance to LGBT cancer patients, facilitate local volunteer support for those affected by cancer, and provide work opportunities for those in recovery who�re attempting to re-enter the workforce. 

Coupled with the National LGBT Cancer Network training and consultation to providers, the get-a-vision programs will provide three critical components to LGBT cancer patient survival and a thriving recovery:

1)    Finances: Direct financial assistance through microfunding and debit card distribution;

2)    Community: Volunteer networking and coordination to support LGBT cancer patients through a Time Banking system; and

3)    Recovery: Practical steps to re-enter the working world through an online barter exchange. ( is providing the platform services.)
