The initiation sucks, but the community is forever.

This is where lifelong friends are made. We all come together at the YSC Summit to thrive in our post-diagnosis lives in a supportive, compassionate community. What makes us different? No cliques, mean girls or snark allowed. Just genuine honesty, support and vulnerability when it matters most. Oh, and we like to throw a great party, too.

Learn From Experts

Learn from experts who know your breast cancer experience is different.

Get ready for workshops created exclusively for the young breast cancer experience.

We don’t shy away from topics that make your doctors blush. We talk candidly about sex during and after treatment and how to re-establish desire. We dish on early menopause, relationship issues and the side effects no one wants to mention. (Hello, vaginal dryness 😉 )

Each workshop is curated to bring you the most current, evidence-based information to assist in decision-making about your health care. All provided by medical, wellness and mental health experts.

Who Goes to the YSC Summit?

 

  • Young adults diagnosed with breast cancer
  • Young adults living with metastatic breast cancer
  • Long-term breast cancer survivors, who were diagnosed young
  • Co-survivors* and friends
  • Healthcare providers
  • Patient advocates

* If you offer the crucial emotional, physical, financial or spiritual support that a young adult needs, you are a co-survivor.
