Young Survival Coalition®

In 2017, JALBCA awarded Young Survival Coalition® (YSC) a $50,000 grant.

Young Survival Coalition® (YSC) is the largest national organization dedicated to the critical issues unique to young women diagnosed with breast cancer. YSC works with survivors, caregivers and the medical, research, and advocacy communities to increase the quality and quantity of life for women diagnosed with breast cancer ages 40 and under. Legal education and tools are important resources to offer all young women affected by breast cancer. Young breast cancer survivors must often navigate legal issues around employment, patient rights, health insurance, finances, advanced planning, and more. YSC is excited to partner with JALBCA on a three-part web series designed to educate young breast cancer survivors on legal issues that can accompany a breast cancer diagnosis. Each part of the web series will be implemented via a live-streamed Facebook event and recorded, stored, and made accessible through YSC’s website, social media channels, and YouTube.
