Welcome to Erica Fisk's Page

Erica Fisk

Thank you for visiting my page. This year I have made an exciting and challenging commitment to participate in YSC Tour de Pink, a three-day, 200 mile bike ride for breast cancer. I know I can do it with your help encouraging me and supporting me with a donation.

My world was completely changed when I received the diagnosis of breast cancer in 2012 at 37 years old. In the days that had led up to my official diagnosis, the doctors and nurses I had come in contact with had told me, "Don't worry, you're too young", "you're too young for breast cancer, the lump must just be a calicfication", "you have dense breast tissue"....you get the picture. I was too young to be have an "old" lady's disease. On February 9, 2012, I was officially diagnosed with this "old lady's disease". It was at that appointment that I was introduced to the Young Survival Coalition. My brain was flooded with information and the Doctor said, "here's your treatment navigator, website, and phone number to YSC, you're going to need this to keep up with what is about to happen". And boy was she right!

Breast cancer became a full time job for me. There were several tests and scans and things that had to be done before surgery. Then there was what type of surgery, lumpectomy, mastectomy, single or bilateral, what type of reconstruction, what is the chemo, will be there radiation? Overwhelming is an understatement!

Education and information from my doctors and from YSC helped me to make my decisions, my team of doctors were very professional and helped but I needed to know that I was making the best decisions for myself and my future.

Your donation will go to support Young Survival Coalition and ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. YSC is the premier organization providing supportive services and education resources for young women affected by breast cancer.

YSC Tour de Pink is much more than just a bike ride, it’s a chance to honor survivors, raise awareness and support important programs for young women affected by breast cancer. I hope I can count on you to help me reach my fundraising goal!

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 Young Empowered Survivor (YES) educational 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.
