The Bianchi Dama Ambassador Program has committed to support the YSC Tour de Pink Survivor Bike Program, which provides bikes free of charge to young adults facing breast cancer. Tour de Pink (TdP) is a three-day, 200 mile bike ride that raises funds for Young Survival Coalition (YSC) and young adults affected by breast cancer nationwide.
Approximately 30% of participants at each TdP ride are breast cancer survivors, and Tour de Pink (ysctourdepink.org) is more than just a ride for them, it’s an empowering experience to reconnect with their bodies after cancer treatment.
As we support the Survivor Bike Program, we not only provide breast cancer survivors with a chance to reclaim their health and bodies after a breast cancer diagnosis, but also support the nation’s only charity bicycle ride that supports young adults affected by breast cancer. What’s more, we are providing an opportunity to support young breast cancer survivors who would otherwise be unable to afford to ride in Tour de Pink.
Young breast cancer survivors often face economic hardship because of lack of access to comprehensive health insurance as well as steep medical costs associated with a breast cancer diagnosis. Young survivors are often burdened by student loan debt, are less established in their careers, and lack savings.
All of these challenges result in economic hardship that can prevent a young survivor from being able to buy a bike to ride in Tour de Pink.
Help us raise funds for a young breast cancer survivor. You can donate to any fundraiser supporting this cause, and your donation will go directly towards another bicycle for a survivor.
Established in 1998, Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to young adults diagnosed with breast cancer age 40 and under and their co-survivor support networks. YSC also educates and influences the medical, research and legislative communities to address breast cancer in young adults.
Through educational resources and programming, annual conferences, and local and online support networks, YSC ensures no young adult faces breast cancer alone. For more information, visit youngsurvival.org.
