Young Survival Coalition (YSC), is the premier organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women who are diagnosed with breast cancer.  YSC offers resources, connections, and outreach so women feel supported, empowered, and hopeful.

YSC was founded in 1998 by three young women who were under the age of 35 when diagnosed.  They were discouraged by the lack of resources available and the underrepresentation of young women in breast cancer research.  Today, YSC is the go-to organization for young women facing breast cancer diagnosis.
