A Sneak Peek at October and How To See It All


There is so much going on this week and throughout October that I want to give you a sneak peak as well as some tips on where and how to keep up with all the exciting events, stories and launches that are coming your way.

I look forward to seeing you all on social media (check out our YSC Social Media cheat sheet below) and in person during the next four–six weeks! Thank you in advance for helping to spread the word that young women can and do get breast cancer!

Katy Perry

Katy Perry's We Can SurviveHave you heard that Katy Perry is throwing a benefit concert JUST to raise money for YSC? No kidding, this is HUGE!!! The part that excites me the most is the possibility that a young woman with breast cancer who has never heard of YSC and thinks she is alone might find us because of this awareness-raising concert.

The idea that she will  find her community of sisters at YSC — the idea gives me goosebumps! Follow all the concert buzz at #WeCanSurvive on Twitter or Facebook.

To show our thanks, I encourage everyone to send Katy Perry and the other artists performing with her a personal THANK YOU. They can all be found on Facebook and below are their Twitter handles.

Personal Stories Are Powerful

Are you blogging about your breast cancer experience (or have you in the past)? If so, I encourage you to add a link to your blog to the Blogging Breast Cancer forum on YSC’s Community Boards. By sharing your story, you will reassure other young women they are not alone and let them know there are others out there who “get it.”
