This year I wasn't sure how was going raise money for breast cancer. I have to be honest, I was procrastinating, until last week I received not one, but two separate phone calls. Two more close friends were diagnosed with breast cancer. In honor of my newly diagnosed friends, I decided to do something different this year.
I've made an exciting commitment to become a YSC Champion with my campaign: Sweet 16. 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. Having been diagnosed 16 years ago at the age of 39 I wanted to support a cause closest to my heart.
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! Please help make a difference to another young survivor.
Thanking you in advance, for your support.
Health & Happiness,
Jill Feuer Wisner
