I’ve been thinking for a while how to celebrate my upcoming 24th birthday in a special and meaningful way. After careful consideration, I’ve decided that I want to celebrate by doing a fundraiser for the Young Survival Coalition (YSC), a non-profit that focuses on the critical issues unique to young women with breast cancer, such as early menopause, fertility issues, the development of more aggressive cancers, and lower survival rates while also advocating for increased studies on young women with breast cancer, an underserved segment of the population. I was (still am!) very fortunate to have a great support system from the start- but occasionally I felt like the only 23 year old in the world going through this and YSC has recently helped me realize that I am not. In fact, 13,000 women under the age of 40 are diagnosed with breast cancer every year in the U.S. So please join me and help me make my birthday a memorable one! Any contribution you can make will mean the world to me and to many other courageous young women ?
