Did you know there are an estimated 250,000 breast cancer survivors living in the U.S. who were diagnosed at age 40 or younger?
While a diagnosis at any age is life altering, young women affected by breast cancer have unique issues. You may feel like you are the only young woman who has ever been diagnosed with breast cancer. But you are not alone.
We created the Newly Diagnosed Navigator to educate and empower newly diagnosed young women. We want to help you fight the feelings of fear and isolation that can accompany a diagnosis — so that you feel connected, supported and hopeful. Inside this Navigator, you’ll find an easy-to-understand breast cancer glossary, questions to ask healthcare teams, information on family planning, a way to track your medical information and helpful tips from young women who’ve been down this road.
