Young Survival Coalition Joins Hands With Nutra Nail to Help Fight Breast Cancer

New York, NY - (August 10, 2005)

The Young Survival Coalition (YSC) (www.youngsurvival.org), the only international, non-profit network of breast cancer survivors and supporters dedicated to the concerns and issues that are unique to young women and breast cancer, has announced that is joining hands with Nutra Nail®, a leading nail care line, to help fight breast cancer.

During the months of August, September and October Nutra Nail will donate 25 cents from every purchase of their top selling, specially-marked packages of nail care products to the YSC, with a minimum donation of $5,000.

Young women diagnosed with breast cancer often feel isolated and have little contact with peers who can relate to what they are experiencing. The YSC is working to change that as well as increase the quality and quantity of life for all young women affected by breast cancer. As a partner in achieving this goal, Nutra Nail will set up displays announcing this promotional fundraiser beginning in August and lasting through October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Participating retailers will have the organization's brochures and logo on the displays, and encourage consumers to visit www.nutranail.com for more information about the campaign.

"We are thrilled to partner with Nutra Nail on this critical campaign to raise awareness of breast cancer in young women," said Michele Przypyszny, Executive Director of the YSC. "With the support and enthusiasm of Nutra Nail and so many nationwide retailers, the YSC can extend its reach exponentially and ensure that young women across the country who are affected by breast cancer know they are not alone and the YSC community is here to support them."

Participating retailers include most drug, food and mass market stores.
