Make an Impact

13,000 young adults under age 40 were diagnosed with breast cancer last year.

Help give them the information, programs and community they need for as little as $13.

“I am so proud to have the opportunity to be a part of such a great organization. YSC has provided me with many great resources and given me the ability to share those with other young women.

- Vanessa S., diagnosed at age 32

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.

Give today to ensure those 13,000 young adults diagnosed with breast cancer this year have access to resources and support built just for them.
