De-Coding Breast Cancer Meet Up

Mar 11, 2019

12:30pm – 1:30pm CT

Are you or have you met a young adult with cancer? Come join Young Survival Coalition, the only organization dedicated to young adults diagnosed with breast cancer. Together, we will network, share our experiences and learn from each other.

Young adult survivors are in a unique position since most of their peers have not received a serious health diagnosis, yet they cannot fully relate to other adult patients who are decades older either. Emotional trauma like isolation amongst friends and confronting a sudden loss of youth and immortality is not uncommon for young adults faced with cancer.

Share your personal journey, explore these questions and educate each other. You do not have to be a young adult diagnosed with cancer to attend. Anyone interested in this topic is welcome.
