RESEARCH FOR A BETTER TOMORROW. YSC FOR A BETTER TODAY.
When you give to YSC, you help us:
Train tomorrow’s advocates so research, legislation and medical care include the needs of young adults.
- Each year, our RISE program fully funds a week-long intensive that trains volunteers how to read emerging research and clinical trials and effectively communicate with industry and legislative representatives.
- We support emerging research by ensuring the unique needs of young adults are advocated for.
Bring the lastest advancements in research and treatment to the young patients and their co-survivors that need this information most.
- Nearly every month, YSC offers educational webinars led by experts in their field about pressing topics like the recent implant recall and the collateral damage of chemo on dental health.
- Each year at the YSC Summit, leaders in the medical community share the latest research. These sessions are all livestreamed for free, so our entire community can access the information.
- We’ve even begun translating resources into other languages, with a newly launched Spanish-language resource hub.
Create more resources just for the metastatic breast cancer community.
- In 2019, we’ve updated nearly 150 pages of our Metastatic Breast Cancer Navigator with the most up-to-date research, treatment and information, vetted by our medical partners.
- We’re currently developing a guide to managing side effects specifically for the treatments common for metastatic breast cancer patients.
- Each year at the Summit, special workshops, a half-day retreat and other programming are featured exclusively for metatastatic attendees.
Educate a new generation of healthcare providers about the unique needs of young adults dealing with a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.
- At each of our major events throughout the country, we offer free healthcare provider training that counts for continuing education credits.
- We’ve expanded our support of survivor providers with online meetups exclusively for their unique experiences.
Build the kind of supportive community we all need after a breast cancer diagnosis.
- We support 176 local support networking groups across the country. These groups offer an in-person refuge for young adults to find others sharing their experiences.
- Our online communities ensure access to support with monthly, facillitated virtual meetups and active private Facebook group where young adults can turn to each other for peer support.
