You have a syntax error onlines 18 and 19 (your two if statements...   Too many parenthesis and not teh same number of opens and closes.  Try these:

if ( !empty($frstname) && !empty($lstname) )     {
      
            if (!empty($email) || !empty($about_yourself)) {

You changed variable names.  you have:

$data = mysqli_query($dbc,$query)
or die('MySQL error:' . mysqli_error($dbc) . "<hr>\nQuery: $query");


which executes the query.  Then you have these commented lines

//$result = mysqli_query($dbc,$query)
       // or die('Error query database.');
            //or die('Error:' .mysqli_error($dbc));
           
Here you are trying to use $result as your result set but you used $data for the query result above.

 while ($row = mysqli_fetch_array( $result  )){
      $to =$row['email'];
      $frstname = $row['frstname'];
      $lstname = $row['lstname'];
      $about_yourself = $row['about_yourself'];
      $msg = "Dear $frstname $lstname $about_yourself ,\n$text";
      mail($to,$subject,$msg,'From:' . $from);
      echo 'Email senbt to '.$to. '<br>';
