In Our Own Words: Young Survivors Share Real Stories and Advice

In Our Own Words: Young Survivors Share Real Stories and Advice

It's almost October, and although that means it's time to pull on a sweater, enjoy a spiced pumpkin latte and carve a pumpkin, it's also Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It can sometimes be overwhelming with so many messages about breast cancer and seeing pink everywhere. This year we decided to enlist the help of the amazing women YSC serves to get real advice from someone who has been there - someone who gets it.

A huge THANK YOU to the fabulous women who took the time to submit a video offering advice on everything from fertility to recommendations on getting through chemotherapy. But above all, these lovely ladies offered words of hope, love and support with a message that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.

Over the next month, we will be featuring eight of the videos received. We will release a new video every few days, so please remember to follow YSC on Facebook and Twitter for updates. While we could not feature all of them this month, you can find all of the great videos in the survivor stories section of our website.

We hope you will view the survivor stories and share your own story and/or advice to contribute to a growing searchable online library of guidance and encouragement from real survivors.

And here's a preview of what's to come...
