YSC strives to work with the medical-research community to identify why young women get breast cancer, why it is more aggressive and how we can encourage additional research for young women.
To ensure the medical and research communities see the young face of breast cancer, YSC regularly attends local, national and international conferences and symposia. There, we present our Research Agenda Development and Pilot Registry posters. We also send our passionate young women to national and international oncology professional meetings so we know about the most up-to-date science, can network with the research and care communities and make sure these professionals know they can reach out to YSC as a resource. If you attend ASCO, AOSW, ONS, SABCS or other professional oncology meetings look for YSC.
We support meaningful research initiatives including LIVESTRONG’s Young Adult Alliance, the Love/Avon Army of Women, the Breast Cancer M.A.P (Mind Affects the Physical) and the Department of Defense Breast Cancer Research Program. We hope YSC can influence and increase the amount of research relevant to our population. To make that happen, we motivate young women to participate in clinical trials and research whenever possible.
