Survivor Programs

Programs for breast cancer survivors are held throughout the year to provide education, support, and fellowship.

Young Survivors in Action (YSIA)

Young Survivors in Action (YSIA) focuses on the issues and concerns facing younger women diagnosed with breast cancer. The main goal of YSIA is to provide networking, support, and education to young women diagnosed with breast cancer in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s and early 50’s. Topics include but are not limited to; nutrition, fertility, motherhood, stress, nutrition, and continuing to live life to the fullest.

Nurture with Nature

The great outdoors provides a backdrop for camaraderie and support! The Delaware Breast Cancer Coalition’s Nurture with Nature provides a fun way for survivors to connect and relieve stress.

The Nurture with Nature series allows women to come together and experience nature by hiking, kayaking, biking, horseback riding, astronomy, or simply walking through a forest or along a beach.  Outings occur approximately once a month throughout all of Delaware. During the winter months we host craft events such as basket and jewelry making.

We welcome all who are newly diagnosed, currently in treatment, experiencing a recurrence, or a long term survivor to join us in our Nurture with Nature series.

For more information contact Lois Wilkinson at (302) 672-6435 or email lwilkinson (at)
