Hi everyone! Im so excited to turn 40 years old and 2 years cancer free!
On 2015 after finding a lump in my breast I was told in many places that I have to wait until I was 40 to get a mammogram done. Was told that I only have a cyst nothing to worry about , that I was too young and to wait for 4 more years to be checked. Took me until 2016 to finally get some help. After everything, surgery, radiation, etc my oncologist told me I was lucky, i was not gonna make it to my 40’s.
Now in few weeks I will be able to celebrate them, and also my 2 years cancer free...and the most important thing, I will see my daughter grow.
Because giving up was not an option and still isn’t.
Be bold, be strong and keep fighting.
I've made an exciting commitment to become a YSC Champion with my campaign: My 40th birthday . The money I raise will go to support Young Survival Coalition (YSC), the premier non-profit organization dedicated to supporting and educating young women affected by breast cancer.
Each year, more than 13,000 young women 40 and under are diagnosed with breast cancer. I am making the commitment to help raise money to support these women, so they can face breast cancer feeling empowered.
I know I can do it with donations from people like you. How will your contribution help?
$25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.
$100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.
$250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as peer supporters.
$500 could fund a Young Empowered Survivor (YES) educational program.
$1,200 could pay for two women to travel to our annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer.
Any amount helps!
Thank you, in advance, for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity.
