Welcome to Wendi Holley's Page

Wendi Holley

Thank you for visiting my page. Many of you know I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 40 years old. Its been almost 6 years and it is still hard to say that. Sometimes I feel guilty that I have no evidence of disease at this time. That is always a fear in the back of my mind. Will it return?

The Young Survival Coalition is an amazing organization that not only helped me, it helped my family through diagnosis, treatment and after care. Breast Cancer will always be a part of my life, the long term side effects from treatment are with me everyday! I will not let them control me!

That is one of the reasons I continue to ride 200 miles every year. It keeps me accountable to exercise! It also allows me to give back to the YSC and help others when diagnosed. I am honored to be able to share my experience and journey to help someone else.

I believe in the YSC and all it does for Young Women diagnosed with Breast Cancer.


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.

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!

Your donation will directly support Young Survival Coalition and ensure that no young woman 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.

Cancer can be a very isolating disease, and especially so for a young woman who may still be finishing their education, starting a career, and building her romantic and family life. YSC’s supportive services include: in-person support groups around the country, online video support groups, one-on-one peer mentoring, creation and distribution of free educational materials for survivors, co-survivors and healthcare providers, a training program for survivors to amplify the need for expanded research and advocacy, and an annual conference called the YSC Summit. Read more about YSC here: 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.
