  • The Young Survival Coalition (YSC) focuses on issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC works with survivors; caregivers; and the medical, research, advocacy, and legislative communities to improve the quality of life for women age 40 and under who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC's affiliate network provides peer-support and networking opportunities for young women in all stages of the treatment and recovery cycle. The Coalition also hosts teleconferences, conferences, and retreats for young women newly diagnosed with breast cancer, women diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, and community volunteers interested in leadership development. YSC offers a SurvivorLink program that matches young women facing breast cancer with a survivor who shared a similar diagnosis. YSC also produces educational materials. Some publications are available in Spanish. Additionally, Spanish-speaking volunteers are available to serve as survivor matches in its peer-support program.
