This would have been my 5th year riding in YSC Tour de Pink, a three-day, 200 mile bike ride for breast cancer. I had committed to do this ride and pledged to raise $3,000.00 that will go directly to Young Survival Coalition. Unfortunately, The 2020 YSC Tour de Pink physical rides have been canceled due to the ongoing health risks posed by COVID-19.

However, there are more than 250,000 survivors who were diagnosed with breast cancer before age 40 living in the U.S. today. They are navigating an already permanently altered life after cancer now compounded by COVID-19.

YSC Tour de Pink is going virtual!
So, Kara and I are going to do a virtual ride!!!

We'll Be Riding!!
I hope I can count on you to help us reach our fundraising goal! 🚴🚴🚴

This is more than a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness that young adults can and do get breast cancer, and to come together as a supportive community.

Your donation will directly support Young Survival Coalition and ensure that no young adult faces breast cancer alone. YSC offers resources, connections and outreach so women feel supported, empowered and hopeful YSC is the only national nonprofit that solely focuses on serving young women under the age of 40 affected by breast cancer. YSC serves over 8,000 women each year with support and education to be their best health advocate throughout all stages of breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, and long-term survivorship.

Established in 1998, Young Survival Coalition (YSC) is the largest nonprofit dedicated exclusively to young adults diagnosed with breast cancer age 40 and under and their co-survivor support networks. YSC also educates and influences the medical, research and legislative communities to address breast cancer in young adults. Through educational resources and programming, annual conferences, and local and online support networks, YSC ensures no young adult faces breast cancer alone. For more information, visit youngsurvival.org.

You can view YSC’s audited financials and annual reports online here: youngsurvival.org/who-we-are/financial-information

How will your donation help?

$25 could fund YSC materials at three healthcare providers’ offices.
$100 could provide a Newly Diagnosed Navigator to six women when they need it most.
$250 could allow us to train four survivors to serve as a peer supporters.
$500 could fund a survivor advocate in our RISE training program
$1,200 could pay for two young women to travel to the YSC Summit, an annual conference for young women affected by breast cancer and their co-survivors.

Any amount helps!

As I train for this amazing ride I plan to update this page frequently along with my social media accounts so that all of my supporters can see my progress.

Thank you in advance for your support. I truly appreciate your generosity.
