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. My participation means that I have pledged both to prepare myself physically for the bike ride, and also to raise funds that will go directly to Young Survival Coalition. You can view YSC’s audited financials and annual reports online here: youngsurvival.org/who-we-are/financial-information
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.
I’ve been working in cancer research for almost a decade. I’m frequently thanked for my work in this field, and I know the research aspect is really important. And still, nothing makes me feel quite as powerless as when a friend tells me that they or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer. As I have watched cancer affect so many lives, I’ve learned that the communities and support systems formed during diagnosis, treatment, and survivorship are so integral to the healing process. Our team name embodies the reason why I wanted to do the Tour de Pink--so that no one fights alone. I would love your support in reaching our goal to make sure that no one fights alone!
Your donation, in a nutshell:
$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.
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.
