For the past 8 months, I’ve had to practice all the recommendations for stopping the COVID-19 virus, without the threat of a pandemic. Social distancing protects everyone, and this is how I survive it.
These are scary, difficult times. But you’ve been through difficult times before. For years I’ve helped people manage anxiety about cancer. And today I’m here to say you’ve got this.
As a mom of three young children, being diagnosed with breast cancer at 33 disrupted everything that encompassed my normal way of living. But thankfulness helps me focus on what’s most important.
When navigating your breast cancer treatment, there are often questions about dental care for oncology patients. We spoke to American Cancer Society Fellow Dr. Ronald Koslowski for answers.

Training for the Olympics and going through breast cancer treatment seem like they have nothing in common. But Olympic Gold Medalist, Kikkan Randall, recently told YSC they’re a lot alike.
As a society, we need to encourage and support each other to love our bodies and take better care of them. At YSC, we’re committed to providing the resources you need during National Women’s Health Week and all year long.
When our family decided to go “eco” and “nontoxic,” I was beyond overwhelmed. Nine years into survivorship, empowering other women to live a cleaner and greener life is my passion.
Breast cancer bulldozed my facade of confidence and perfection. In their place I learned new ways to cope, and emerged a warrior of mental wellness.
To the outside world, I played the part of a healthy, normal single woman in her thirties. But cancer takes that confidence you should have in yourself that you are worthy enough to find a significant other.
