NEW BFFs IRL


The YSC Summit is all about learning, laughing, connecting and sharing with others who’ve had experiences similar to yours. In our event hangouts, meet other survivors and thrivers in casual conversations curated by your peers. We’ll have opportunities to connect for those who are newly diagnosed, living with metastatic breast cancer, survivors and thrivers of color, LGBTQ+ and gender fluid, long-term survivors and more!

Come hang with people who just get it. This is a place you don’t have to explain hot flashes, cold caps or chemo brain.
