Meet Lindsay

Lindsay was diagnosed for the first time in 2009 at the age of 21, in her senior year of college with no family history. Years later, at the age of 28, her cancer returned again. This time it had metastasized to her bones and lungs. Lindsay has experienced firsthand how lonely it can be to go through treatment as a young person. It wasn't until 2014 that she became acquainted with YSC and discovered that she had been missing out! She started attending Face 2 Face meetings and more recently she rode in her first Tour de Pink, raising over $12,000 for YSC programs. It is her mission to educate people about Stage IV and to help young women in need connect to YSC. Lindsay grew up in Minnesota and now lives in New Jersey working for an environmental non-profit organization. She can't live without coffee, sunshine, nature, or her chemotherapy drugs.
