Young Women's Initiative

Living Beyond Breast Cancer’s Young Women’s Initiative provides resources tailored to meet the specific needs of those diagnosed with breast cancer before age 45.  We know that the psychosocial and medical concerns are different than those of women diagnosed over age 45, and we are dedicated to providing age-appropriate information and resources specific to the needs of young women.

Through the Young Women’s Initiative, we offer unique webinars, Twitter Chats, conference sessions, publications and advocacy trainings tailored to young women. We curate the latest breast cancer research on young women, profile young women on our blog and work with young women affected by breast cancer to produce videos about health topics relevant to young women.

The Young Women’s Initiative began in 2011 and is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
