Every dollar raised through YSC Champions fundraisers will support YSC’s mission to ensure no young woman faces breast cancer alone.
Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women and breast cancer. YSC works with survivors, caregivers and the medical, research, advocacy and legislative communities to increase the quality and quantity of life for women diagnosed with breast cancer ages 40 and under.
Young Survival Coalition (YSC) was founded in 1998 by three young women who were under the age of 35 when diagnosed with breast cancer. They were discouraged by the lack of resources available and the underrepresentation of young women in breast cancer research. Today, YSC is the go-to organization for young women facing a breast cancer diagnosis. Among other services, YSC:
- Provides information, resources and support from diagnosis through long-term survivorship;
- Educates and empowers young women to be their own best health advocates;
- Works with healthcare providers, researchers and legislators to educate them about the unique issues young women face, and
- Advocates for more studies on breast cancer in young women and access to quality care.
