The money you raise by riding in Tour de Pink plays an integral role in helping Young Survival Coalition ensure that no young woman faces breast cancer alone. YSC is excited to now offer Online Video Support Groups. These monthly facilitated online meetings make support groups accessible to young women, wherever they are located. Women can join the monthly meeting for Women In Treatment, Women Diagnosed Under 30 and Metastatic Women.
One of the biggest concerns that young women express when they are diagnosed with breast cancer, is that going through treatment and in recovery is a real sense of isolation. They want to connect with other young survivors to share stories and experiences. YSC Face2Face (F2F) networks provide an in-person meeting for young women, but when there is not a F2F convenient for someone because of location, Online Video Support Groups provide that connection.
Once a month women can connect online with other young women from their computer in their own home! Our facilitators lead conversations that are meaningful and timely for participants. Women who have participated in YSC Online Video Support Groups report they feel more connected, they are less isolated and have a better sense of what to expect during their treatment and recovery.
