YSC Face 2 Face (F2F) networks are local support and networking groups for young women affected by breast cancer. When a young woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, one of the overwhelming emotions is isolation and loneliness.
They often don’t know any women their age who are also facing a breast cancer diagnosis. YSC F2Fs bring young women together so they don’t feel alone. They can connect with other women like them to share stories, experiences and support.
“Having a group of women who truly understand what I am going through has been invaluable. From tips on home remedies for chemo side effects to being able to laugh and cry together about the hand that life has dealt us, I do not know what I would do without these ladies. They have made all the difference.” Sarah, diagnosed at age 32
With 152 YSC F2Fs across the country, it is easy for young women to find a local network near them. And if there isn’t a F2F close enough, they can start their own group; YSC provides the support and resources to build your own circle of support. Nearly 4,000 women are currently served by YSC F2F networks.
