Linda's Legacy

Supporting Young Women With Metastatic Breast Cancer

The Young Survival Coalition is the primary beneficiary of the Linda Casill Vogel Memorial Fund.

This page has been set up as a convenient way for you to make a direct contribution to YSC that is in the name of the LCV Fund and also tax-deductible.

Your donation will be used for the YSC Annual Summit, a three day conference that is the largest in the world for young women affected by breast cancer.

Specifically, the donations are used in two ways:
* 1) Sponsoring The "Living and Leaving a Legacy: Half Day Retreat for Young Women Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer" and hopefully starting in 2019 a concurrent session for co-survivors (husbands, care-givers, etc) summit.youngsurvival.org/mbc-retreat.
* 2) Providing travel grants for several young women with metastatic breast cancer to attend the conference. Over 100 travel grants were awarded in 2017, but there were hundreds more who were wait-listed and presumably unable to attend due to the cost of traveling to the conference.

Linda benefited greatly from YSC through the years. Initially when Linda was diagnosed at age 28, YSC was a wonderful source of information for her. But more importantly, Linda attended the YSC Annual Summit several times (with me joining her in later years). Of course the Summits were always a great source of information (40 sessions over three days with many focused on Metastatic Breast Cancer issues). But I think the greatest benefit of the Summit may have been the connections made with other people-- a feeling of not being alone in the fight, finding a new and lasting circle of friends and support, and being able to talk so openly about many personal issues. I remember Linda (and I) would always come back from the conference feeling empowered and energized!

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.

Thank you, in advance, for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity.

Mike
