Although the majority of women diagnosed with breast cancer are over the age of sixty, a significant number of women in their 40's, 30's and even 20's, are diagnosed each year. Younger women face different issues from older women both medically and based on their life stage.
To Life! partners with the Young Survival Coalition (YSC) to support younger women dealing with breast cancer. YSC develops networks designed for breast cancer survivors diagnosed in their 40’s or younger. Whether you have just been diagnosed, are still in treatment or are several years out, join us to connect with others. Share resources, ask questions, make new friends and be assured that you are not alone. Find more information at http://www.youngsurvival.org.
