Young Survivors In Action

How can Young Survivors in Action help me?

Young Survivors in Action has one goal- to focus on our survivors holistically.  We provide education, support, and networking events that focus on the whole person- physically, mentally, and emotionally. These interactive meet-ups are aimed to improve side effects from breast cancer treatments, enhance quality of life, and provide the space to cultivate and grow into a “new normal”. We know that a breast cancer diagnosis can turn a world upside down, so we are here to help navigate the twists and turns ahead.

Who is a Young Survivor?

The term “young” can be fluid and we take that same approach here. A young survivor can be a breast cancer survivor in her 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s.  A young survivor can also be a survivor who was diagnosed with breast cancer at a young age and has continued to thrive in life, inspiring new survivors and providing each survivor with hope. A young survivor can also be a breast cancer survivor that feels young at heart and is living life to the fullest.

What is Holistic Wellness?

Holistic wellness is an approach to being healthy that looks at the person’s health as a whole.  This support considers not just the person’s physical health, but includes their emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing. The events and workshops provided through Young Survivors in Action are cultivated with this component in mind- focusing on you!
