How can I turn my experience into action and advocacy?
Many women find that turning their efforts toward action and advocacy at the end of treatment can be both rewarding and empowering. Some take part in marathons or volunteer at local organizations. Young Survival Coalition is the product of women who were determined to turn their experiences into something positive to help empower other young women. Action as seemingly simple as sharing your story can make a huge impact in other young women's lives as well as in the fight for a cure. You can learn more about opportunities in the Advocacy section of our website or read about Upcoming Events. You might also wish to volunteer for our SurvivorLink program for other young women affected by breast cancer.
