Young women with metastatic breast cancer face particularly intense challenges—they’re also underserved by a medical community too often unaware of the unique issues young women face. Thankfully, for those living with metastatic breast cancer, YSC’s programs can help provide the support and information young women both need and deserve.
The Right Support for You
The MetsLink circle of support is there so that you are never alone. Our educational programs and teleconferences share information about advances in treatment and clinical trials—sharing the hope and understanding that advanced breast cancer is manageable.
A Circle of Support after the Dial Tone
Young women with advanced breast cancer lead full and successful lives—but we can all use the extra support of an understanding voice.
One-on-one: Talk to another young woman facing metastatic breast cancer through our SurvivorLink program.
Online: Connect with other young women through YSC's online community boards. Ask questions and share your experiences on a forum just for young women diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
Networking call: YSC’s telephone networking groups put you in touch with others who know your challenges first hand: young women with metastatic breast cancer who are single, married, raising children, managing careers or school, and working on relationships with loved ones.
Join our facilitated MetsLink networking calls to talk about the issues most important to you. You don’t have to leave home to participate: just dial in, offer support and share those stories that only another young woman with metastatic breast cancer can truly understand.
